Call for Grant Applications: IEEE Foundation/IEEE Life Members Fund

The IEEE Foundation cultivates relationships and resources to advance IEEE’s core purpose to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. To fulfill its role, the IEEE Foundation awards grants to new and innovative projects and administers more than 130 funds that support a variety of educational, humanitarian, historical preservation, and peer recognition programs of IEEE units.

The IEEE Life Members Committee (LMC) seeks to support programs that promote engineering to the pre-college community, the professional development of young electrical/computer engineers, the history of electrical/computer engineering, and the interest of Life members. The LMC is responsible for the administration of the IEEE Life Members Fund (LMF), in coordination with the IEEE Foundation. The Fund supports the awarding of grants to projects of interest to Life members, potential engineers, and engineering students.

Along with the IEEE Foundation, LMC accepts grant applications for new and innovative projects two times per year. The grant application deadlines for 2013 are 15 March and 6 August.

If your Unit, Section, or Chapter has a project in the areas of interest to Life members, you are welcome to apply for a grant at through the IEEE Foundation Web page. Before submitting an application online at, please review the IEEE Foundation grant guidelines at
