Call for IEEE APS Educational Initiative Proposals 2021

The IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (APS) is pleased to announce the 2021 call for proposals for the Educational Initiatives Program (EIP). The EIP is part of the IEEE APS Educational Committee whose mission is to provide quality educational resources for educators, students, and the public within the theme areas of electromagnetics, propagation, and antennas.

The primary role of this call is to provide financial support for launching new educational activities and services that increase awareness, develop interest, and facilitate education in topics and concepts related to electromagnetics, propagation, and antennas.

General Guidelines:

  • A successful proposed initiative must be innovative and involve a new educational procedure with significant benefits for electromagnetics, propagation, and antenna education.
  • The EIP will only consider proposals for new educational initiatives from IEEE APS members.
  • We are committed to fairly distributing the funding to different regions, to promoting gender balance, and providing opportunities to emerging economies.
  • Proposals may be submitted at any time in the year for review. Proposals will be evaluated throughout the year to reduce the time from submission to response and implementation. The time for revision and decision will not exceed three months and it will be reviewed by at least two members of the IEEE APS Educational Committee.
  • The granted funding typically ranges from $500-$5,000 for a maximum duration of two years. Larger amounts may be considered for initiatives that serve a large number of the society’s members.
  • The proposal should consist of a cover page (title, contact information, IEEE membership number, and amount requested) followed by a maximum of three pages with the description of the proposed educational activity. The description should clearly indicate the use of the funds, as well as the milestones and deliverables. Examples of deliverables: A YouTube video explaining a new antenna lab, the manual of this lab, and a guideline of how to create the lab in your own institution.
  • Funds should be mainly used to cover the creation of the educational activities and materials. Travel expenses are not typically funded. Even if these travels are essential, the EIP may decide to provide only partial support for these trips.
  • When the initiative is completed, the proposer should provide a short report (maximum 5 pages), which must not contain any confidential information. Additionally, the created materials can be archived at the IEEE APS Resource Center: https://resourcecenter.ieeeaps.org/

To apply, combine the required documentation into a single PDF file and send it to the attention of:
