One year fellowships will be awarded to promote, recognize, and support PhD/ Masters level study and research within the Electron Devices Society’s field of interest. The field of interest for EDS is in all aspects of engineering, physics, theory, experiment and simulation of electron and ion devices involving insulators, metals, organic materials, plasmas, semiconductors, quantum-effect materials, vacuum, and emerging materials. Specific applications of these devices include bioelectronics, biomedical, computation, communications, displays, electro, and micromechanics, imaging, microactuators, optical, photovoltaics, power, sensors and signal processing. Fellowships are expected to be awarded to eligible students in each of the following geographical regions for 2018: Americas, Europe/ Middle East/ Africa, and Asia Pacific. Only one candidate can win per educational institution.
