What is it?

The IEEE PES Scholarship plus initiative provides financial support to students who are interested in a career in power engineering. Apply online by June 30th and your reward, if chosen, will be received the following fall!

Why Apply?

Many students at Michigan Tech have received this award, and the financial assistance it provides is substantial. Scholarship amounts are US $2,000 the first year, US $2,000 the second year and US $3,000 the third year (as long as you continue to qualify). PES will also provide with you other resources, such as a career mentor if you want one.

  • You'll be working toward an electrical engineering bachelor's degree (or first professional degree).

  • You'll be a full-time student in the coming academic year at a university or college in the U.S., Puerto Rico, or Canada that offers undergraduate courses in power engineering.

  • You're willing to take at least three of the power engineering courses for a total of nine or more credits.

  • You're a U.S., Puerto Rican, or Canadian citizen or permanent resident and reside in IEEE Regions 1 through 7.
