2013 IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Initiative: Application Now Open

We launched the IEEE Power & Energy Society Scholarship Plus Initiative™ in response to the looming workforce shortfall in the power and energy industry. Over the past two years, we've distributed over $642,000 in scholarships to 265 students from 109 U.S. universities. This year, we want to have 700 applications in order to distribute more than 400 scholarships to electrical engineering students in the United States.

Our goal is simple: we want to increase the number of well-qualified, entry-level engineers.

PES Scholarship Details

We are offering up to $7,000 and assistance with career experience opportunities to qualifying students! Applicants must be a full-time student working towards a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S., willing to take power engineering courses and have a GPA of at least 3.0. Please encourage students to visit ee-scholarship.org for more information and apply today!

Here's how it works:
  • Eligible students should apply online before June 30th at www.ee-scholarship.org
  • Recipients will be selected by PES volunteers with industry and academic backgrounds.
  • In Fall 2013, recipients will be notified of their selection and be provided with information on how to arrange for a career experience with industry-leading companies.
