Young Professionals Travel Grant

Young Professionals Travel Grant

The IEEE Young Professionals Program helps young professionals and recent graduates transitioning from students to young professionals, and eventually future leaders. We encourage young professionals and recent graduates to continue their participation in the IEEE SMC Society, its conferences, and its technical activities because active participation in IEEE societies is highly beneficial to career advancement.

During SMC2014 we plan to organize a Reception for Young Professional members to learn about the benefits of participating in the SMC Society and to exchange ideas with leaders of the IEEE SMC Society. In addition, a Travel Grant of US$500 will be made available to a small number of applicants to attend SMC2014.

Eligibility

  • Applicants must be SMC Society members in any grade except student or graduate student.
  • Applicants must have received their first degree within 10 years.
  • Applicants must be the first or second author of an accepted paper at SMC2014.
  • Applicants must register and present their paper at SMC2014.

To apply for support, send your application before Aug 1, 2014, to the Young Professionals Program Chair, Ophir Kendler. Notification of acceptance will be made on Aug 15, 2014. The application must include the following:
