The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) awards scholarships of up to a total of US$7,000 for up to three years of consecutive support to students who have expressed interest and commitment to pursuing signal processing education and real-world career experiences. By generating interest and awareness among students, employers will gain insight about the value of investing in signal processing students as potential employees and assets to their companies, organizations, and institutions.
Students and graduate students from all 10 IEEE Regions are encouraged to apply!
The application opens on Friday, 1 March 2024. The deadline to submit your application is Sunday, 30 June 2024.

The SPS Scholarship Program will be funded through donations to the IEEE Foundation Signal Processing Society Student and Young Professionals Fund (SYP Fund). The SYP Fund receives steady individual and corporate contributions through SPS conferences, our Student Job Fair, as well as other activities and donations.
Scholarship funds will be distributed directly to the recipients’ educational institutions, IEEE Sections, or other. No funds will be directly paid to students. If there is more than one recipient at a single institution, only one transfer of funds will be sent for all recipients and earmarked for each individual student.
