The IEEE Frances B. Hugle Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Frances B. Hugle, and her many significant engineering accomplishments, and to help provide the resources for female engineers to follow in her footsteps. The scholarship is presented to up to two female IEEE Student Members who have completed two years of undergraduate study in an engineering curriculum at an ABET-accredited university or college within the United States.
The IEEE Women in Engineering Committee takes pleasure in presenting Rachel Leong and Rebecca M. House as 2023 co-recipients of the IEEE Frances B. Hugle Scholarship, in recognition of their outstanding academic performance and passion for engineering.
