If you’re an engineering graduate student or a student in a capstone design course using standards in your work, you may be eligible for a $500 USD Standards Education Grant from IEEE. These grants are awarded four times per year, and include online publication of your paper; you can view final papers from previous winners here. Details from the IEEE site:
Student(s) beginning a design or development project will submit an abstract summary describing the project, which includes:
- a summary of the project goal (i.e., what are you trying to build?);
- an understanding of what standards are being considered to achieve the project goal;
- a declaration of intention to submit an application paper for publication by the IEEE upon completion of the project;
- a statement of endorsement from a faculty mentor must be included.
