IEEE is offering grants for graduate and upperclassman design project student application papers.

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

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. Note that eligible projects may also use non-IEEE standards.
