Last week I mentioned the PhD Scholarship available to Basque students from Boise State University. Today I have additional information on this topic.
Boise State University’s (BSU) Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department is proud to announce that it has partnered with the BSU Basque Studies Program and the Boise Basque Museum & Cultural Center to offer two scholarships to qualified applicants to pursue the PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boise State.
The scholarship, officially known as an assistantship, will provide monetary compensation in the range $18,000-$24,000 per year to allow the student to cover living expenses. It will also provide full payment of tuition costs.
Boise is home to a large population of Basques. The BSU Basque Studies Program and the Basque Museum & Cultural Center will coordinate members of the community to welcome the scholars to the city by inviting them to dinners, gatherings, and other events in the area.
Outstanding applicants who have completed the Masters degree or Licenciatura, or expect to complete it by August 2012, in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering are encouraged to apply. Candidates should submit :
- the application form (Basque PhD Scholarship Application Form),
- unofficial transcripts,
- three letters of recommendation, and
- a statement of research interests (also complete this form ECE Student Research Area Preferences)
by 15 April 2012. Research specialties of Boise State’s ECE faculty can be found at link. Application materials should be submitted electronically to the BSU Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at email@example.com with the subject line “Basque PhD Scholarship”. Notification of awardees is expected by 15 May 2012.
Scholars who are selected will then be required to take and demonstrate adequate levels in the GRE exam, and the TOEFL English language proficiency exam. Students with a C1 English language level should be able to achieve passing scores on the TOEFL exam.
This must then be followed by a formal application for admission to Boise State University’s Graduate College and the Electrical and Computer Engineering graduate program. The process for this is explained at Boise State University Graduate College.
