Apply for a PES Scholarship Today
PES is now accepting applications from undergraduate students in the US for the PES Scholarship Plus Initiative. We distributed over $642,000 to 265 students over the last two years. Apply today!
The IEEE PES S+ is a scholarship and career experience program that was created in response to the looming workforce shortfall in the power and energy industry. The goal is simple; to increase the number of well-qualified, entry-level engineers by helping students.
The IEEE PES S+ provides multi-year scholarships to qualifying U.S. 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.
Additionally, the top IEEE PES Scholar from each US IEEE Region will be selected as the IEEE PES John W. Estey Outstanding Scholar. These 6 individuals receive an additional US$5,000 for school expenses, and a travel honorarium to attend the IEEE 2014 PES General Meeting.
Applicants must be a full-time undergraduate students working towards a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S., willing to take power engineering courses and have a GPA of at least 3.0. Eligible students should apply online by June 30th, 2013 at www.ee-scholarship.org.
