Subject: Education, Technology, STEM | Deadline: Aug. 1, 2014
There are three grant focus areas:
Education is the cornerstone of technological advancement. The IEEE Foundation supports projects that expand and enhance engineering, science and technology education opportunities for students of all ages through mid-career professionals to positively impact workforce development and involvement in IEEE.
HISTORY OF TECHNOLOGY:
Achieving the promise technology holds for tomorrow requires an understanding of the role it plays in our lives today and how it changed "yesterday". The IEEE Foundation supports projects that increase awareness of the impact and influence of early technology on the present and future among the general public. Projects primarily aimed at preserving or studying the history of technology must include plans to disseminate the results.
APPLYING TECHNOLOGY FOR HUMANITARIAN CAUSES:
Progress to a better tomorrow is dependent upon the investment of time, talent, knowledge and resources to improve the human condition. Within its humanitarian focus area, the IEEE Foundation supports projects that implement or disseminate replicable, sustainable, technology-based solutions for humanitarian issues in underserved and underprivileged areas."
