Self-nominations are not accepted for any EAB Award. However, for the scholarships listed above, self-nominations/applications are acceptable. An individual can only serve as a nominator or reference for one award per category. For most EAB Awards, the nominator does not need to be an IEEE member.

Multiple Award Recipients

Multiple Award Recipients are defined as a group of three or fewer people (not a team) working on the same contribution, each individual having separate but valuable contributions.

Multiple recipients may have the same citation, or different citations depending on their contributions. Unless otherwise specified, all EAB Awards may be awarded to an individual, multiple recipient, or a team. In the event of multiple recipients, travel will be provided for all to attend the EAB Award Presentation Ceremony in the year in which the award is given. Recipients will receive awards and honorariums, where applicable, as specified for each award.

Team awards

In the event of an award going to a team, when recipients are required to be IEEE members, i.e., Accreditation, Continuing Education, Educational Innovation, all members of the team are required to be IEEE members. Travel will be provided for one recipient only. Honorarium is to be split equally among the team members. Only one honorarium for any one award will be given.

Please see the individual award pages for any exceptions.

The award consists of a plaque or sculpture.
