Support the IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Initiative

The IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Initiative was created to help address the crucial challenge facing the field of power and energy. There is an impending shortfall of the qualified power engineers needed to sustain and transform electric energy systems that the United States and Canada relies so heavily upon. There are a number of ways you can help support this initiative through sponsorship opportunities. Any financial support you pledge can remain local to you or your company to ensure that scholarships will be awarded to future engineers serving your community.
