The award provides research fellowships, worth of USD 100,000, to 20 KAIST graduate students
With an audience of 100 people present, KAIST held a ceremony for the Qualcomm Innovation Award 2015 at the Information Technology Convergence building on campus on March 12, 2015.
The Qualcomm Innovation Award, established in 2010, is a fellowship that supports innovative science and engineering master’s and doctoral students at KAIST. Qualcomm donated USD 100,000 to KAIST, stipulating that it be used to foster a creative research environment for graduate students.
To select the recipients, KAIST formed an award committee chaired by Professor Soo-Young Lee of the Department of Electrical Engineering and accepted research proposals until late January.
The award committee first selected 37 proposals from 75 papers submitted and then chose the final 20 research proposals on March 12, 2015 after presentation evaluations. The presentations had to show promise of innovation and creativity; prospective influence on wireless communications and mobile industry; and the prospect of being implemented.
Each recipient received a USD 4,500 research fellowship along with an opportunity to present their research findings at a workshop where Qualcomm engineers and other distinguished individuals of the industry will attend.
Previously, Qualcomm has donated research fellowships to KAIST graduate students in 2011 and 2013.
