We are thrilled to announce that UPWARDS Fellowship Applications are now open! The University Partnership for Workforce Advancement and Research & Development in Semiconductors (UPWARDS) for the Future program is dedicated to addressing the global semiconductor workforce shortage through an international collaboration between six U.S. universities, five Japanese universities, Micron Technology, and Tokyo Electron (TEL).
The UPWARDS-UW program calls for applications for up to four graduate fellowships in the College of Engineering and the College of Arts and Sciences. Each fellowship includes a graduate research assistantship stipend plus benefits and tuition for 9 months of the 2024-2025 academic year. Each fellowship is renewable for up to one additional year based on satisfactory performance and review by a committee. If you or someone you know is dedicated to advancing knowledge and innovation, we encourage you to apply. Application Deadline: June 30th, 2024. The review will begin immediately, with fellowship awards announced in August for the 2024-2025 academic year.
