James M. Henderson Fellowship
In 1999, a fund was set up by Mrs. Joan K. Henderson in memory of her husband who received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering at UIUC in 1947. The fellowship was established to recognize an outstanding first-year graduate student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The fellowship will be awarded based upon the nominee's undergraduate academic achievement, as well as leadership in activities or research as an undergraduate.
The awardees are selected using the following criteria:
- The recipient must be a first-year graduate student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
- The recipient must have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement in their undergraduate program.
- The recipient must have demonstrated leadership in activities or research while an undergraduate student.
- Applicants must not be graduating before May of the next calendar year.
Applications for the fellowship may be submitted online. The application period will be advertised on My.ECE during the Spring semester.
The ECE Fellowship committee will make the selection based on the applications submitted by the deadline.
The recipient(s) will be recognized during an annual Student Awards Banquet. All student recipients are featured on the second floor of the ECE Building's Student Honors Wall.
