The ASML Wilton Technology Scholarship is merit-based and annually supports talented individuals who have completed the Bachelor of Science program from a recognized US college or university in the Northeast, and who are further motivated to pursue a 2 years full time Master of Science degree in the technical and scientific disciplines (listed below) at a recognized university (anywhere in the US).
The ASML Wilton scholarship will provide approximately $10,000 per year – paid in installments and upon receipt of eligible expense and academic performance documentation. Continued funding will be dependent on continued academic performance for up to 2 consecutive years during the MSc program. Students who receive a scholarship are not obliged to work at ASML after graduating. They do, however, want to get to know you and give you the opportunity to get to know them during the scholarship period. They will include other support like a personal mentor who shares his/her technical knowledge and experiences with you, and who introduces you to the latest R&D activities as well as a network of accomplished people in this field. They will also invite you to visit their site and meet with members of their team.
