Scholarships for ISE Graduate Students
The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering has one scholarship available to current and future graduate students.
James and Marie Buck Scholarship: This fund is to be used to support one or more annual scholarship(s) to junior, senior, or graduate level students in industrial engineering with a preference that the scholarship be awarded to students in human factors (special interest in ergonomics) or in management (special interest in economics).
To apply for this award, visit the UI College of Engineering Scholarship Portal.
Thanks to the generosity of contributors to the ISE Department, we are pleased to offer a program to offset up to $500 of the costs for ISE graduate students to attend research conferences. Participating students must be nominated by their ISE faculty advisor and are expected to actively participate in the conference through a podium or poster presentation, for example. They must also submit a request for funding through the Graduate Student Senate, if appropriate.
The student should send an email to DEO, copying their advisor. The request should include the purpose of the trip, destination, departure/return dates of travel, and a link to the agenda for the conference.
Students who have received funding include:
- Levi Kirby: Ph.D. student, attended Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference in West Lafayette, Indiana, June 2022
- Thomas Burt: Ph.D. student, attended International Conference on Traffic and Transport Psychology in Gothenburg, Sweden, August 2022
- Emily Shull: Ph.D. student, attended International Conference on Traffic and Transport Psychology in Gothenburg, Sweden, August 2022
