BSU SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING TO PROVIDE TWO FULL-RIDE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR PHD STUDENTS FROM THE BASQUE COUNTRY

HELP WELCOME BASQUE COUNTRY ENGINEERING STUDENTS

Boise State University has a nationally recognized Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) program that offers a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. As part of the program, scholarships are available for outstanding students. BSU’s ECE Department would like to partner with the Boise Basque Community. They will offer two full-ride scholarships per year to new PhD students from the Basque Region.

They would like to have a support group of community members who would be willing to act as a welcoming committee and could commit to inviting one or both of the students to an occasional dinner, gathering, or event. If you would consider being one of the contacts for this welcome group or would like to receive further information – please contact Patty Miller at 343-1285.
