Scholarship Description

The Charles LeGeyt Fortescue Scholarship was established in 1939 as a memorial to Charles LeGeyt, in recognition of his valuable contributions to the field of electrical engineering.

The scholarship carries a stipend of up to US$24,000 and is awarded via a trust for which the IEEE Foundation serves as trustee. This scholarship is awarded annually for one year of full-time graduate work in electrical engineering at an engineering school of recognized standing located in the US.

To be eligible, the student must…

  1. be a resident of the United States of America
  2. have majored in the field of electrical engineering, and

The scholarship will be awarded to a first-year, full-time graduate student only. In the event the college is conducting a combined B.S. and M.S. degree program, the student in the penultimate year would be eligible for the award, which would apply in the final year of the program.
