Apple Stanford EE Coterm Scholarship in Integrated Systems

 Academic year 2021 / 2022

Integrated circuit design & engineering is more critical than ever. With a slowing of Moores law and end of Dennard scaling, challenges abound to deliver ever increasing performance and power efficiency. Apple has long recognized these challenges, and develops world-class silicon for its products. Apple's Hardware Technologies (HWT) team is very excited to kickoff the Integrated Systems Coterm scholarship program at Stanford. This program recognizes a few top students with expressed interest in IC engineering, SoC design, verification, test, and Computer Architecture. This unique and highly selective program provides both a paid summer internship at Apple and financial support covering tuition costs of the academic year-long (fall, winter and spring quarters) M.S. degree at Stanford as part of Coterm program. To be eligible, you should ideally be a currently enrolled Stanford undergraduate student in your junior or senior year.

Expectations of an Apple Masters Scholar in Integrated Systems include successful admittance to Coterm program, satisfactory completion of paid internship at Apple HWT during the summer, and continued enrollment in courses related to IC engineering / computer architecture. Students will receive up to three-quarters of paid graduate tuition, based on continuing fulfillment of a sequence in IC engineering*.

(*Disbursement of tuition funds will be to Stanford.)
