Leon Montgomery, a distinguished member of the School of Information Sciences faculty for 22 years (1971-1993). In 1990, Dr. Montgomery developed the concept of a national network for telecommunications research, an idea that evolved into the Telecommunications Education and Research Network (TERN). TERN created a state-of-the-art telecommunications network for education and research and linked 30 universities throughout the U.S. that offered telecommunications degree programs.

II. Guidelines for Selection

The Committee reviews the applications for the K. Leon Montgomery Assistantship and makes its recommendations to the Chair of the Program. The assistantship for a given year is not granted if the Committee determines that there is no eligible candidate.
