- The recipient must be a junior or senior majoring in Electrical Engineering with an interest in the field of electronics.
- The recipient must have a demonstrated scholastic excellence.

In September the Department distributes scholarship data forms to students in the top 10% of the junior class and the top 10% of the senior class. The Scholarship Committee then reviews the scholarship data forms and identifies the students to receive the award.
