Long-time Supporters Donate Cash Prizes to Scholarship Fund

For Pete Sauer and John Undrill, winning IEEE Technical Field awards is just the beginning of what makes them incredible contributors to the IEEE community. Pete Sauer was one of a handful of PES volunteers who worked tirelessly to launch the PES Scholarship Plus Initiative eleven years ago, in support of workforce development in the power and energy sector.

Pete Sauer was awarded the 2022 IEEE Nikola Tesla Award “for contributions to dynamic modeling and simulation of synchronous generators and for leadership in power engineering education.” In a show of incredible generosity, he immediately donated his cash prize to the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Scholarship Plus Initiative, an act that was unsurprising for a consistent supporter like Sauer.

“For me it was an easy decision to use the funds that came with the award to further help IEEE and the Scholarship Plus Initiative in particular. I hope that my small contribution will encourage others to also support this initiative and help grow the engineers of the future.”
