Harriett and Robert Perry Fellowship Award
In 1996 the Harriett & Robert Perry Fellowship was created by a gift from Robert Perry, an alumnus of our department. Mr. Perry and his late wife wished to establish a fund that would help to ease the financial burden for students in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering seeking an advanced degree.
The awardees are selected using the following criteria:
- The recipient must be a graduate student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
- The recipient must have demonstrated promise in his/her graduate program.
- The recipient must demonstrate financial need as a result of the need to support a family, lack of funding, etc.
- 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 Department's Fellowship Committee reviews the nomination and makes the selection.
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.
