Microelectronics and Computer Development (MCD) Fellowships


These fellowships are prestigious awards funded by the Graduate School to attract top quality graduate students into the Computer Sciences and Electrical and Computer Engineering Departments at The University of Texas (UT). Graduate advisers have the vital role of identifying and nominating applicants who qualify for these fellowships.

Note: Award decisions for these fellowships have been decentralized. It is important that you check with the Dean's Office of your unit for nomination procedures, stipend levels, guidelines and deadlines regarding these fellowships. The only recruitment award decisions being handled out of the Graduate School this year will be those for the Harrington, Powers, McNair, South Texas and West Texas Graduate Fellowships.


These fellowships are not available to students who are currently or were previously enrolled in the Graduate School at UT. However, UT undergraduates who meet the criteria are eligible. Candidates must rank within the top 10% of all students in their respective disciplines.
