By October 30, 2023 No Comments

Thanks to the generosity of the Madni Family, a newly-established scholarship will help support three qualified undergraduate student recipients and up to two qualified graduate student recipients pursuing a degree in the fields represented by IEEE-HKN from an active IEEE-HKN Chapter. The scholarship is another manifestation of the Madni family’s commitment to education having already established a scholarship at UCLA. Asad Madni is an Eminent Member of HKN and winner of the Vladimir Karapetoff Outstanding Technical Achievement Award in recognition of his illustrious career as the President of BEI Technologies where he led the development and commercialization of intelligent sensors, systems and instrumentation including the control system for the Hubble Space Telescope’s Star Selector.

To qualify for the Madni Scholarship, a student must be a U.S. citizen enrolled as a full-time student in electrical engineering or related fields at an accredited U.S. university or college. Further qualifications include being an inducted member of IEEE-HKN having completed his or her third year in an IEEE-HKN field of interest. The award will be US$1,000 per student to cover school expenses such as tuition, books, and fees.

Applications will be accepted until April 1, 2024, and can be submitted here. Recipients will be announced by July 30, 2024. The annual selection of scholarship recipients will be administered by IEEE-HKN. We are grateful for this gift that will help so many students! Stay tuned for more details!
