Dr. Kenneth P. and Claire V. Gibbs Scholarship

Established 2010


This scholarship was established by Dr. Kenneth P. (MS '80) and Claire V. Gibbs to provide financial aid to undergraduate students.


The recipients must be juniors or seniors in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with an outstanding scholastic record. Preference is given to students with financial need.

Selection Process :

In September the ECE Department distributes scholarship data forms to students in the top 15% of the junior class and the top 15% of the senior class. The Scholarship Committee then reviews the scholarship data forms and identifies the students to receive the award. Three students will be chosen for this scholarship.


The recipient(s) will be recognized at the annual spring ECE Awards and Recognition Banquet.
