IEEE Foundation Invites Applications for Technology Education Projects

The IEEE Foundation cultivates resources and relationships to foster technological innovation and excellence that benefits humanity. The foundation relies on donations to bring the excitement of scientific discovery to students, foster technological innovation, preserve history, and promote awareness of the long-reaching effects of engineering and its impact on humanity.

For 2015, the foundation will invest approximately $400,000 to increase the understanding of technology and its critical role in meeting global challenges and improving the human condition.

Proposals are invited from IEEE organizational units for projects that inform the public about technical issues (such as, but not limited to, energy, healthcare, cyber security, internet governance, environmental change) for the purpose of fostering balanced factual discussion and understanding of a current public issue.

Grants ranging from $5,000 to $100,000 will be awarded in support of projects that result in the creation of materials and activities, including presentations and/or simulations that are suitable for secondary school/college students, secondary school teachers, IEEE groups, local community groups, and/or technology policy makers.

The project should provide technical information and present a balance between the advantages and disadvantages of using a particular technology; target materials at a secondary school level; encourage participation; and avoid choice/advocacy of direction.

To be eligible, applicants must be considered tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

For complete program guidelines, information about grant recipients from previous years, and application instructions, visit the IEEE Foundation website.
