Celebrating Donors & the Students they Support with the IEEE Antennas & Propagation Society
Brilliant minds gathered from around the world for technical talks, exhibitions, workshops and demonstrations in the field of antennas and propagation and associated technical fields during the 2022 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas & Propagation held from 10 to 15 July in Denver, CO, USA. IEEE Foundation Senior Development Officer Michael Deering was there to celebrate the student beneficiaries of the IEEE AP-S C. J. Reddy Travel Grant for Graduate Students and the Raj Mittra Travel Grant and the donors who make the programs possible.
IEEE AP-S C. J. Reddy Travel Grant for Graduate Students, funded by C.J. Reddy, aims to help graduate students attend the annual Symposium and further their research work in the field of antennas and propagation. Six students were supported in 2022: Ali Alqaraghul (Northeastern University), Quoc Hung Dang (The University of Adelaide), Firas Dawod (South Dakota School of Mines), Audrey Evans (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Siddhartha Panigrahi (National Taiwan University), and Pavle Petrović (University of Belgrade).
The Raj Mittra Travel Grant, funded by Raj Mittra, supports travel by one Ph.D. level scientist to attend the annual IEEE AP-S Symposium. The 2022 recipient is Dr. Xingqi Zhang. He is an Assistant Professor at the University College Dublin (UCD) in Dublin, Ireland.
The IEEE Foundation is proud to work with donors like C.J. Reddy and Raj Mitra to nurture the next generation of engineers, scientists and technologists. Both C.J. and Raj are Honored Philanthropists and members of the IEEE Heritage Circle, our cumulative giving donor recognition group.
