IISE's scholarship and fellowship program is in place to recognize graduate and undergraduate industrial engineering students for academic excellence and campus leadership. The awards are valued up to $4,000. IISE also offers honors and recognition specifically for graduate students, including the Graduate Research Award and the prestigious Pritsker Doctoral Dissertation Award. Applicants must be enrolled full time in graduate or undergraduate industrial engineering programs and have an overall point-hour average of 3.40 on a scale of 4.00.
Graduate students must have had a 3.40 average as undergraduates to qualify. Applicants must have a graduation date of May/June or later of the year the scholarship is awarded. The nominee’s scholastic ability, character, leadership and potential service to the industrial engineering profession are all considered by the scholarship fund trustees when selecting the scholarship recipients. Students may not apply directly for any scholarships with the exception of the Vinod and Gail Sahney Scholarship. They must be nominated by IE department heads or faculty advisers and nominations must be submitted to the Institute headquarters by Nov. 15. Scholarship nominations open Sept. 1.
