Australia Council Student Awards

The IEEE Australia Council’s Student Branch Awards recognise outstanding achievements by student members engaged in activities conforming to IEEE objectives and purposes. These would include, for example:

• Significantly improving the vitality of the Branch with regard to activities, membership, or finances.

• Effective interaction of the Branch with the local Section or Region, or IEEE technical societies, e.g. seminars, conferences etc.

• Community involvement that benefits the schools and/or the community, the image of the IEEE, and the image of engineering in general.

All student branches in Australia are eligible to enter the competition. The awards are determined annually and presented to the winning student branch at an appropriate occasion.

The student branch counsellor will be informed of the closing dates for the awards, usually at year-end, and will help students submit applications. More information is available here.

Power and Energy Society Student Travel Awards

Each year the IEEE Power and Energy Society invites student members and graduate engineers (IEEE PES members) to attend its Annual General Meeting and submit papers and/or posters. The meetings are usually held in the USA. The PES chapter of the Queensland Section awards two travel grants of up to $2,000 each to students studying power engineering at Queensland universities and IEEE PES graduate engineers to facilitate attendance at the AGM.
