IEEE offers grants to undergraduate and graduate students and to faculty mentors to help with graduate and capstone design projects with an industry standards component.
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 help with graduate and capstone design projects with an industry standards component.*
IEEE will publish the results as a student application paper.
Requirements: Student(s) 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 may also use non-IEEE standards.
Applications may be submitted at any time throughout the year.
