Honoring Dr. Lynn Fuller
The microelectronic engineering program now has over 1000 alumni working in the semiconductor industry worldwide. The program has become nationally and internationally recognized for excellence in micro-e, as has Dr. Fuller.
When the history of Microelectronic Engineering is written, there will be a long chapter devoted to Dr. Lynn Fuller. Dr. Fuller completed his BS and MSEE degrees at RIT in 1970 and 1973. He joined the electrical engineering faculty in 1970, and made RIT's first transistors in 1978 teaching a senior level professional elective course in semiconductor devices. That course, along with Dr. Fuller's dedication, led to the launch of RIT's program in Microelectronic Engineering. At that time, no other university in the world had attempted to educate undergraduate students in the area of micro-e. Dr. Fuller was given founding responsibility for the development and implementation of the program, funding and creation of the laboratory facility, and development of the graduate programs in micro-e, including the creation of the RIT Microsystems Ph.D. Program.

Dr. Lynn Fuller Endowed Student Support Fund
The Dr. Lynn Fuller Endowed Scholarship is intended to honor Lynn’s contributions to RIT, the Kate Gleason College of Engineering, and especially the generations of students who benefited from the Microelectronic Engineering program that he helped create. This fund will support undergraduate and graduate students within the Microelectronic Engineering program. Students will experience not only the courses and “hands-on” lab activities initiated by Dr. Fuller, but will be prepared with the necessary tools to become future leaders in the microelectronics industry.
Help Us Reach Our Goal
To endow the Dr. Lynn Fuller Endowed Student Support Fund, we must raise $100,000. The Lynn Fuller name will be attached to this scholarship in perpetuity to honor his legacy. At this level, the endowment fund will produce $5,000 each year to support qualified Microelectronic Engineering students. Major donors to the fund will be recognized on a plaque prominently displayed in the Microelectronic Engineering Department. Donors will also be invited to an annual luncheon to meet the student recipients of the scholarship.
Thank you for your consideration in supporting this scholarship. Funds in support of students in need of bridging the financial gap will have a lifelong impact on these students.
