IEEE STEP was developed to provide a dynamic program for facilitating the transition from Student member to young professional by introducing the opportunities and benefits of IEEE membership during the onset of a STEM career.


STEP funding

Funding is available for STEP activities, including the graduation reception for groups holding an event with a minimum of ten recent graduates. Basic funding will be provided at the amount of US$500, and additional funding may be available if additional recent graduates attend beyond 25.

Applicants are required to submit an application four weeks prior to their scheduled event. In addition, funding will not be granted to an event that has already occurred.

Once the application is submitted, the review process begins with an IEEE volunteer member evaluating the form. All STEP events that go on to be approved and funded by the STEP program budget must provide the following information two weeks following the event:

  • detailed write-up of STEP event;
  • attendance report, minimum ten graduating IEEE members with numbers;
  • photos;
  • final summary of budget (actual vs. forecast);
  • copy of all advertisements used to promote the event (e-mails, invitations, posters, fliers).

Please be sure to take pictures of your event so that others can celebrate with you.
