IEEE Power & Energy Society Announces 2012 Scholarship Recipients

The IEEE Power & Energy Society Scholarship Plus Initiative (IEEE PES S+) recently announced scholarship distribution to 228 students at 100 universities across the United States for the 2012–13 academic year.

The IEEE PES S+ provides multi-year scholarships to qualifying US electrical engineering undergraduate students. Scholars receive up to three years of funding—US$2,000 the first year, US$2,000 the second year, and US$3,000 the third year—interspersed with up to two years of valuable, hands-on career experience.

The program, made possible by donations to the IEEE Power & Energy Society Scholarship Fund of the IEEE Foundation, is in its second year. The IEEE PES S+ has supported a total of 265 scholars attending 109 universities, including Ivy League colleges, flagship state universities, and prestigious engineering colleges across the US. The program has provided $642,000 in scholarships and has raised $4.1 million in cash and pledges from donors to the program, nearing the halfway point to its $10-million fundraising goal.
