September 2019 Campaign Update
Realize the Full Potential of IEEE
IEEE Foundation is leading a special campaign across IEEE’s expansive network to raise awareness, forge partnerships, and fund Priority Initiatives.
Providing for the Next Generation

For nearly three decades, IEEE has been an important part of CJ Reddy’s professional life. In fact, Dr. Reddy credits his membership in both IEEE and the IEEE Antennas & Propagation Society (APS) as playing a significant role in the success he has achieved. Realizing that he would soon be attending his 30th APS Conference, Dr. Reddy decided it was time for him to give back. He was aware of other members who had established travel grants and such, but was unaware as to how they came about.

After a few conversations with IEEE Foundation staff, Dr. Reddy was able to identify exactly what he wanted to do. As a result of his very generous gift of $250,000 in corporate stock, IEEE APS CJ Reddy Travel Grant for Graduate Students Fund was established.


Cutting-edge Prosthetic for Buddy

Buddy the German Shepherd has gone bionic thanks to IEEE-HKN Iota Delta Chapter and EPICS in IEEE (Engineering Projects in Community Service) volunteers at the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ, U.S.

One-year-old Buddy, was abandoned and his back leg became trapped and painfully infected. Buddy was forced to gnaw off his hind foot and part of his ankle. To save Buddy’s life, his veterinary team opted to amputate the bottom half of his back leg, but lacked the technology to fit him for a prosthesis that would grant him full range of motion. That’s when IEEE-HKN Iota Delta Chapter and student volunteers team came to the rescue, thanks to a US $10,000 EPICS in IEEE grant, made possible by donations to the IEEE Foundation.

The team—consisting of graduate students, undergrads and professors applied for the grant from EPICS in IEEE, a program designed to empower high school and college students to use technical solutions to aid communities. The team plans to build a motorized transtibial—below-the-knee—prosthesis using 3D modeling and printing.


Summer Program Encourages Teens to Try Engineering

The 2019 TryEngineering Summer Institute welcomed 155 high school students from 17 states and 10 countries.

Thirty of those students attended thanks to needs-based scholarships through IEEE Foundation. The generosity of individuals, organizations and 12 IEEE societies and councils helped make attending the program a reality for students with varying socioeconomic backgrounds. Recipients commented that attending this “eye-opening” and “life-changing” program would not have been possible without the scholarship.

This two-week, on-campus summer program (held in July) gives teens the opportunity to meet young engineering professionals, go on field trips to watch engineers in action, and learn from inspiring guest speakers with real-world experience. They explore a variety of engineering disciplines in a fun, hands-on environment engaging in projects.
