Myron Zucker Student-Faculty Grant Program 2017

Managed by Blake Lloyd, CMD Zucker Planning and Operation Committee, Myron Zucker Research Fund Management

Program Description:

The Industry Application Society is soliciting interested parties to submit proposals to the Myron Zucker Student Faculty Grant Program. Adhering to Mr. Zucker's goal, the principal objectives of the Student-Faculty Grant Program are:

  •  to interest students and faculty in industry applications of electrical engineering;
  •  to involve students and faculty in engineering problems related to the Scope of the IEEE Industry Applications Society;
  •  to provide financial assistance to students for their education; and
  •  to provide seed money to allow faculty members to commence or expand teaching, research, or academic concentrations in industry applications of electrical engineering.

In general, the Program functions much like a research support agency. It is administered by the IEEE Industry Applications Society through its Zucker Grant Committee with the consent of the IEEE Foundation.

The project must be designed to produce publishable results in one year (12 months). The preferred period of performance (for these 12 months) is September 1st through August 31st of the following year. The funding is such that approximately two grants, not exceeding $25,000 each, can be awarded during each annual proposal cycle. This endowment is the programs only funding source; no other sources, including IEEE membership dues, are used.
