Jeremy Feland, a junior Biomedical student at Texas A&M University, and TAMU IEEE Student Branch member, has been awarded the IEEE Houston Section 2018 scholarship. Jeremy was selected from a pool of 15 high achieving candidates. As an aspiring doctor, Jeremy hopes to use the scholarship to continue his undergraduate studies.
Each year the Houston section raises money and awards a merit based scholarship to students who promote the interests of the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Houston Section as part of our mission to advance Engineering and Science. Th
e scholarship is the culmination of a year long effort of fund raising, application processing, selection, and awarding. The scholarship work is accomplished by many dedicated IEEE Houston section volunteers and sponsors. Both the annual IEEE Houston Section golf tournament and the Eaton company were major sponsors for the 2018 scholarship. Applications for the 2019 scholarship are now being accepted and will be due by the end of August 2019. To be eligible,
a student must either be an IEEE member, or the child of an IEEE member, and be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program of study in an engineering or science field. An application packet for the 2019 scholarship can be downloaded from the Houston section website.
