The IEEE Standards University is designed for educators, students, engineers, or anyone interested in standards and provides a variety of materials to build a practical understanding of standards and the innovation derived from standards development.
The purpose of the IEEE Standards University Student Grants is to facilitate students studying and implementing industry technical standard in projects. IEEE Standards University Student Grants offer US $500 per project for students, and US $300 for faculty mentors for design, development or research projects in which one of more industry technical standard was studied or implemented to complete the project.
Examples of such projects include designing and creating hardware and/or software to implement an existing industry technical standard, analysing the performance of an industry technical standard in a particular situation, testing compliance with, or alternatively adapting or extending an industry technical standard to fit a new scenario. Projects are expected in include a significant component working on the industry technical standard, projects which simply make use of industry technical standards through modules or libraries without significant design input will not be eligible for an award.
The next deadline for applications is 15th November 2017.
