Links to form at

The IBM SRC Robert H. Dennard Fellowship was established to honor the work of Dr. Dennard and his impact on the semiconductor industry. Since 1963 Dr. Dennard has been at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY where he has been involved in microelectronics research and development from the early days onward.

This fellowship looks to identify a doctoral student that best reflects and compliments many of the works of Dennard with a focus on Device or Design System. The Graduate Fellowship Program (GFP) addresses the issues of improving educational opportunities at the doctoral level and supplying a relevantly educated workforce for the semiconductor industry. The objectives of the program are:

  1. to encourage academically gifted U.S./permanent resident students to pursue doctoral degrees in research areas consistent with SRC program goals, and
  2. to develop a cadre of the highest quality doctoral graduates for member companies and U.S. universities.

The Fellowship

  • offers a unique opportunity to engage with IBM relevant research while pursuing a PhD.
  • is fully funded and includes both tuition and stipend for up to three years (36 months) with an optional year (12 months) extension. 
  • is made up of a select group of scientists that are afforded unique interactions with IBM Researchers that have proven to provide great mentorship and engagement with research opportunities in concert with university research.
  • participants act as key components to IBM and SRC research objectives.
  • encourages research leading to novel, high-payoff solutions for the technology challenges faced by the semiconductor industry at and beyond the time horizons of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors.


  • Accepted to a doctoral program (prefer at least 1 year of program completed)
  • Supporting Research area of Device or Design System (semiconductor devices + integrated circuits and systems based on semiconductor devices.)
