(Note: It is hoped that the Covid-19 pandemic will no longer be disrupting travel plans by summer of 2021, and that residency at the Center will be possible as described below. If travel is still being disrupted, the History Center will consider other arrangements, which may include study in place at a reduced stipend, or not offering the Pugh scholarship during the pandemic should that be necessary.)
Scholars at the beginning of their career studying the history of electrical technology and computing are invited to contact the Center to be considered for the Elizabeth & Emerson Pugh Young Scholar in Residence at the Center’s offices at the IEEE Operations Center, Piscataway, New Jersey, USA.
The residency seeks to provide research experience for graduate students in the history of electrical and computer technologies, while enlisting the help of promising young scholars for the Center’s projects. The Young Scholar generally works full-time for two months at the History Center on a Center project that is connected to his or her own area of interest. This time is usually during the summer, but other arrangements will be considered. The stipend is US$5,000.
The deadline to contact the IEEE History Center about summer 2021 is 1 March 2021. More information, including information on how to apply, can be found at:
