Intel is excited to be announcing the 2013 rollout of the Early Career Faculty Honor Program. This is the second year Intel has offered this program. In 2012 Intel honored 11 faculty members in the US with awards. Intel’s Early Career Faculty Honor Program provides financial and networking support to those faculty members who are early in their careers and who show great promise as future academic leaders in disruptive computing technologies. The purpose of this Program is to help promote the careers of promising early career faculty members and to foster long-term collaborative relationships with senior technical leaders at Intel. This award is a NOT a research grant to sponsor any specific research. The award is a one-time gift of $40,000. The award is intended to be used for:

  • Travel expenses for networking opportunities with senior Intel technical leaders;
  • Travel expenses for opportunities to speak at Intel sponsored events;
  • Travel expenses for the formal award ceremony (planned for August 19th in Portland, OR);
  • The balance to be used at the discretion of the Honoree per university policy for research or curriculum development support (class material, conferences sponsorship, travel expenses, computer lab infrastructure, web site development, textbooks, etc.).
