IEEE Power and Energy Society's Supported Philanthropic Programs

scholarship plus initiative logo

The IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Initiative provides scholarships and real-world experience to undergraduates who are interested in power and energy engineering careers. Our undergraduate engineering scholarships aim to accomplish this goal by attracting highly qualified engineering students to the field. These students are the very individuals who will one day develop new green technologies, build the smart grid and change the way we generate and utilize power.

MOVE Community Outreach, an IEEE-USA Initiative, is an emergency relief program committed to assisting victims of natural disasters with short-term communications, computers, and power solutions. These temporary emergency relief provisions help the affected stay connected and make sure they can access the help they need. Services include phone charging, internet & communications support, and lighting for disaster victims. When not deployed for natural disasters, MOVE volunteers conduct community outreach and facilitate learning opportunities for students and the general public in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). They have been as far west as Texas, and as far north as New York to get students excited about STEM.
