The IEEE EMC Society provides funding to selected economically disadvantaged engineers from both developing and developed countries to attend the annual IEEE International Symposium on EMC.
Financial support is limited to basic symposium registration, excluding optional activities and services, and may also include travel and/or lodging expenses. The Financial Assistance Program for Economically Disadvantaged Engineers (FAP/EDE) committee shall determine the level of support to be provided. This committee has been formed by the IEEE EMC Society Board of Directors.
The applicant must present a technical paper in which he or she is the principal author or participate in a workshop, tutorial or demonstration that provides a substantial contribution to the conference. If there are multiple authors or presenters, only one can apply for financial assistance.
The applicant must provide two endorsements from:
1) A co-worker/supervisor/professor and
2) A regional/local IEEE officer (Section Chairman, Vice Chair, Chapter Chair, etc.).
The endorsement must certify that the applicant is in need of financial assistance.
The applicant must provide proof of commitment to participate at the IEEE International Symposium on EMC in addition to agreeing that he or she will support his or her IEEE Section or EMC Chapter by presenting the paper or other elements of participation at the IEEE International Symposium on EMC to fellow engineers at the local or regional level.
For questions or for application forms, please contact the FAP/EDE Committee Chair by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. EMC
