National Spectrum Consortium launches Women in Spectrum Scholarship

Submitted by National Spectrum Consortium

The National Spectrum Consortium (NSC) is pleased to announce the Women in Spectrum Scholarship program. NSC intends to name at least five Spectrum Scholars during the inaugural 2022-2023 year of this program. With the Women in Spectrum Scholarship program, the NSC is hoping to further develop the pipeline of talented women engineers entering fields related to spectrum and communications. This effort is designed to encourage women scholars to continue to pursue careers in spectrum research and development.

The Executive Committee of the NSC will select women as Spectrum Scholars who are excellent incoming first-year or current students majoring in electrical engineering at an ABET-accredited university in the United States. Eligible candidates for the program should also have a direct family connection to an NSC member organization.

Spectrum Scholars will be awarded a $1,500 scholarship as well as up to $1,000 travel stipend to attend the 2022 IEEE MILCOM conference for an awards ceremony. In addition, Spectrum Scholars will be invited to connect with NSC Executive Committee members and others for mentorship opportunities.
