SPIE Student Scholarships

Posted: February 7, 2017

Applications are being accepted for the SPIE Optics and Photonics Education Scholarships until February 15th, 2017 for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Optics and Photonics Education Scholarships are available to SPIE student members who are studying in optics, photonics or a related field. Students are eligible to receive one (1) Education Scholarship for each academic level including high school, undergraduate, Master's and PhD. Both full- and part-time students are eligible to apply.

Students who have obtained a PhD are not eligible to apply. Preference may be given to those who have not received any previous awards from SPIE.

The Education Scholarship award amounts vary from $2,500 to $11,000 and typically support tuition, books, research activities, and other education-related expenses.

The key criterion in evaluating and ranking applications is the "prospect for long-term contribution that the granting of an award will make to the field of optics, photonics or related field."

Please refer to the SPIE website for scholarship criteria and application requirements.
