The Chicago EMC Chapter Institutes a New Chicago Area EMC Society Scholarship – Your Help Needed!

The Chicago Chapter of the EMC Society is starting a scholarship program using the funds the local Chapter received as its portion of the surplus from the 2005 IEEE International Symposium on EMC. The Chapter will also add additional money to the scholarship fund from its surplus from recent annual local mini-symposia. The interest earned on the endowment will provide the annual scholarship. The Chapter is also considering approaching local Chicago industry to provide additional funding for the endowment.
To fairly administer the scholarship program, the Chapter wishes to establish criteria that will be used by the selection committee, including determining the makeup of the selection committee. The Chapter has been in touch with the Santa Clara EMC Chapter that has given out scholarships in the past, before their program evolved into the IEEE EMC Society University Grant Award.
The Chicago Chapter would like to hear from any other EMC Chapters that may have had, or still have, a scholarship program to learn what works and what doesn’t work.
If you have any scholarship information to share with the Chicago Chapter, please contact H. R. (Bob) Hofmann: Thank you!
