Graduate Student Fellowships & Aid

J.P. Eckert Fellowship for outstanding CIS/MSE, MCIT, CGGT, EMBS and Robotics Candidates

The J.P. Eckert Fellowship will provide five new master's students who are U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents $10,000 towards tuition and fees.

New CIS/MSE, MCIT, CGGT, EMBS, or Robotics students are eligible to apply for the J.P. Eckert Fellowship.

Funding for the J.P. Eckert Fellowship is limited; we expect to be able to make awards to five outstanding candidates who are starting their graduate studies in fall 2016; eligible candidates will be advised re: applying for the Eckert Fellowship in late spring of 2016.

This fellowship honors J. Presper Eckert, co-inventor of the first general-purpose electronic digital computer, ENIAC, at the University of Pennsylvania.
