Seeley W. Mudd Memorial Fund Ph.D. Fellowships  

Graduate engineers now working in industry, who are interested in a career as a faculty member in one of the SME disciplines are encouraged to apply for the prestigious Seeley W. Mudd Memorial Fund Ph.D. Fellowship, administered by SME. The fellowship, which is worth $30,000 per year and may be renewed for another two years will enable the successful candidate to embark on a Ph.D. program, including the initiation of a research career, that should provide the credentials needed for a position as a faculty member. Fellows will be mentored by faculty at their university and by members of the Seeley W. Mudd Memorial Fund Ph.D. Fellowship Advisory Committee and members of SME’s Council of Education and Accreditation. Participating universities are expected to share in some educational costs of this program, which adds to its significance.

The successful candidate will have an excellent educational record, demonstrate an interest in engineering education and the solution of engineering problems, have had applicable employment experiences, and will have a current employer who is supportive of the Fellowship’s goals. The application requires completion of a cover form, two separate essays, a personal biography that emphasizes experiences germane to the Fellowship, and letters of reference.  


Non-binding expressions of interest – e-mail, telephone call, short letter – are due by November 27th, 2011, and completed applications are due January 8th, 2012. Potential candidates are urged to consult with a member of the Committee or an appropriate member of SME staff as they prepare their materials.
