The IEEE Women in Engineering Committee (WIEC) encourages development of local activities that are of educational and professional value to IEEE members and that increase the visibility of the WIE Affinity Group. To assist WIE Affinity Groups the WIEC has a limited amount of funding available to support such activities.

Newly established WIE Affinity Groups are eligible to request up to US $200 in start up funding. Established WIE Affinity Groups are eligible to request up to US$400 for special projects. Such requests must be submitted at least three months prior to the activity. The WIEC will review the request at their next scheduled meeting. The WIE Affinity Group will be advised if the request has been approved. The WIEC may consider funding beyond US$400 if a project is considered especially valuable to the WIE mission. 

To apply for initial funding, the following Funding Request Form must be submitted. 

Special funding requests must use the Special Funding request form.
