RESEARCH PROGRAM - LUCENT TECHNOLOGIES FOUNDATION AND BELL LABORATORIES



SPONSOR: Lucent Technologies Foundation and Bell Laboratories  

PURPOSE: To encourage students to pursue careers in science and

engineering.



DEADLINE: December 20



SUMMARY: There are two announcements below. Take your time to

review each of these programs to see if you might qualify. Then

follow the instructions on the appropriate Web pages to apply for

consideration.



COOPERATIVE RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM



The CRFP -- sponsored by the Lucent Technologies Foundation and Bell

Laboratories -- is designed to develop scientific and engineering

ability among members of minority groups underrepresented in science.



The fellowship provides tuition, university fees, books, an annual

living stipend of $17,000, and related travel expenses. Fellowship

recipients are eligible for summer employment and are matched with

a Bell Laboratories scientist as a mentor.



College seniors may apply who will be pursuing a Ph.D. degree in the

disciplines of chemical engineering, chemistry, communications science,

computer science/engineering, electrical engineering, information

science, materials science, mathematics, mechanical engineering,

operations research, physics, or statistics.



More information on the CRFP is available.



***********************************************************************



GRADUATE RESEARCH PROGRAM FOR WOMEN



The GRPW -- sponsored by the Lucent Technologies Foundation and Bell

Laboratories -- is designed to identify and develop scientific and

engineering ability in women and to increase the representation of

women in these fields.



The program provides support for outstanding women students pursuing

full-time doctoral studies. The program consists of two types of

awards: fellowships and grants. The fellowship provides an annual

living stipend of $17,000, tuition and fees, and textbook allowance.

The grant provides $2,000 annually to be used by the recipient the

following year in any way that benefits her professional development.

Both fellowship and grant recipients are eligible for summer employment

and are matched with a Bell Laboratories scientist as a mentor.



Women college seniors may apply who will be pursuing Ph.D. degrees in

the disciplines of chemical engineering, chemistry, communications

science, computer science/engineering, electrical engineering,

information science, materials science, mathematics, mechanical

engineering, operations research, physics, or statistics.

 

More information on the GRPW is available.

Selection of Candidates 

Participants will be selected on the basis of scholastic attainment in

their fields of specialization, and other evidence of their ability and

potential as research scientists. Finalists will be invited to visit

Bell Laboratories for personal interviews. At that time, they will

speak with members of the technical staff in their field of interest to

aid in the selection of award winners and in the choice of a mentor.

Awards will be made only to women who are U.S. citizens or permanent

residents, and who are admitted to full-time study in a doctoral

program agreed to by the the Foundation.
