  • IEEE WIE Family Cares Grant Program

    The IEEE WIE Family Cares Grant Program was established to promote and enable attendance at IEEE conferences, especially by persons whose financial obligations to care for family members may prevent their attendance, by covering the cost of their family care responsibilities (children, seniors, disabled) up to $1,000 USD.
    • Schedule:
      • Submissions Window: 3 June – 12 July 2024
      • Announcement: Early September 2024
    • Administration
      The IEEE WIE Committee will be responsible for administering the grant.
    • Eligibility
      This grant will be available to all IEEE members of any grade, of any gender, based on need and the desire to attend an IEEE conference and have competing family care responsibilities. These responsibilities can include but are not limited to, childcare, sick care, and elderly care. Applicants can apply each year, however, applicants who have not previously received the IEEE WIE Family Cares Grant will be given priority and a recipient may only receive this grant once every three years.
    • Prize Items
      The grant shall be a maximum of $1,000 USD per grant recipient. Grants less than $1,000 USD may be awarded depending on the applicant’s estimated or actual expenses.

  • IEEE Canadian Foundation Dr. John William Bandler Graduate Scholarship in Engineering Design

    The IEEE Canadian Foundation is pleased to announce a prestigious new scholarship for PhD students and post doctoral fellows studying at a Canadian university, which has been established to honour the memory of Dr. John William Bandler, O.C., PhD, DSc(Eng), ACGI, DIC, FRSC, FCAE, LFIEEE, FEIC, P.Eng., one of Canada’s most illustrious engineering pioneers.

    The “IEEE Canadian Foundation Dr. John William Bandler Graduate Scholarship in Engineering Design,” has been funded by Dr. Bandler’s wife Beth Budd Bandler to annually provide one worthy recipient a $5,000 grant to further his or her education and research. The first nominations for the scholarship will be due March 15, 2025.

    A world-renowned engineer, teacher, researcher and innovator, Dr. Bandler was a professor, former dean and professor emeritus of the Faculty of Engineering at McMaster University, Ontario, Canada from 1969 until his death on September 28, 2023.

    He is internationally known for pioneering “space mapping” technology a mathematical encapsulation of old fashioned common sense, which is now used across the entire spectrum of engineering. Dr. Bandler’s award-winning research revolutionized the engineering and computer-assisted design of microwave circuitry, and his practical application of space mapping, device modeling and optimization theories resulted in more than 500 publications and significant reductions in the development costs of a wide variety of electronic systems. Dr. Bandler was particularly proud of the hundreds of students he mentored over his career, many of whom now hold prestigious teaching and research positions at academic institutions around the world.

    Dr. Bandler was a fellow of numerous engineering societies and the Royal Society of Canada. He was the recipient of multiple awards for his contributions to the field of microwave theory and techniques. These awards included the IEEE Canada McNaughton Gold Medal and the 2023 IEEE Electromagnetics award. He was also honoured as an Officer of the Order of Canada for his scientific contributions that have helped position Canada at the forefront of microwave engineering.

    This scholarship will be awarded annually to either a graduate student in the second or subsequent year of a PhD program or a post doctoral fellow in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in a Canadian university. The recipient must have an outstanding academic record, a commendable publication record and be conducting research in one of the areas of Dr. Bandler’s scientific interests: (i) electromagnetic optimization in microwave and millimeter-wave engineering, or (ii) engineering design optimization, or (iii) space mapping with the cognitive and neuroscientific aspects thereof, or (iv) microwave/millimeter-wave imaging and inverse-scattering problems, or (v) any combination of the foregoing. Further details of the scholarship are posted:

    Friends, colleagues, and past students of Dr. Bandler are encouraged to accelerate the impact of this new scholarship by donating to the IEEE Canadian Foundation Dr. John William Bandler Graduate Scholarship in Engineering Design. Online donations through Canada Helps receive immediate tax receipts for Canadian tax purposes. Every gift has an impact and is greatly appreciated.
