EPICS application

In order to receive funding support from the EPICS in IEEE initiative, an application must be submitted for proposed projects which address one or more areas of interest described by the EPICS program. The following information should be included in the application:

  • contact information for the project lead and alternate;
  • non-profit community organization partner*;
  • high school partner*;
  • project duration;
  • detailed budget;
  • project title and emphasis;
  • project description, objectives, and methodology.

*If the non-profit organization or high school has not been identified, a pre-application can be submitted, if feedback is requested on the proof of concept.

Applications may be submitted at any time throughout the year. The EPICS in IEEE team will review the submission and will notify the project lead within 30 days of receipt. If the application is accepted and funding is provided, the project lead agrees to provide a midterm and final report on technical plans/progress, student demographics, and student outcomes to the EPICS team.
