Students and Young Professionals

It all begins with knowledge, passion, imagination, and opportunity. Our work inspires young leaders by providing the opportunities to make a tangible difference in the world. There is nothing more energizing than encouraging students and young professionals to advance their education, live their dreams, and create a better future for us all. 

IEEE works with tens of thousands of students a year in high schools and universities across the country and around the world. With direct access to hundreds of elite universities and tens of thousands of schools, IEEE is uniquely positioned to help design and promote transformational scholarship programs, fellowship opportunities, career experiences, and travel grants.  

Many of the world’s most pressing challenges require innovations in engineering. Additionally, the need for engineers, STEM professionals, and engineering students is increasing globally as important work for technologists increases.

Your donations to IEEE Foundation are:
  • Encouraging more young people to study engineering and pursue these vibrant careers, given the central role that engineering plays in modern life.
  • Fostering innovations through engineering that can combat hunger, poverty, inequality, underemployment, and the effects of climate change, among other global imperatives. Innovations in engineering are required to meet many of the challenges facing our global family.
  • Inspiring the next generation of leaders around the world to make engineering a much larger priority as a broad range of citizens today lack the technological literacy necessary for effective decision making in our technology-dependent society.
