IEEE STUDENT GRANTS

 

IEEE offers grants to both students and faculty mentors to support graduate and team design projects that include the use/implementation of an IEEE technical standard(s)*, one of which must be an IEEE standard.  Other technical standards may be referenced but the IEEE standard must be the primary standard in the project.

Grants include US$500 for students, with additional honoraria for faculty mentors.

IEEE Student Grant Application

Eligibility and Requirements Eligibility:  IEEE is offering grants to both students and faculty mentors to support graduate and team design projects that include the use/implementation of an IEEE technical standard(s)*, one of which must be an IEEE standard.  Other technical standards may be referenced but the IEEE standard must be the primary standard in the project.

IEEE will publish the results as a student application paper.

Requirements:  A team of students beginning a design or development project will submit an abstract summary describing the project, which includes:

  • a summary of the project goal (i.e., what are you trying to build?);
  • an understanding of what standards are being considered to achieve the project goal;
  • a declaration of intention to submit an application paper for publication by the IEEE upon completion of the project;
  • a statement of endorsement from a faculty mentor must be included.

*Examples of industry standards: IEEE 802.11 Standard for Wireless LANs, IEEE 11073 Standards for Health Infomatics, National Electric Safety Code, etc. For a list of IEEE groups working on industry standards, see Standards Working Groups at IEEE.org. Note that eligible projects must include at least one IEEE Standard.

Applications may be submitted at any time throughout the year.
