The IEEE WIE Family Cares Grant Program was established to promote and enable attendance at IEEE conferences, especially by persons whose financial obligations to care for family members may prevent their attendance, by covering the cost of their family care responsibilities (children, seniors, disabled) up to $1,000 USD.


Submissions Window: 3 June  – 12 July 2024

Announcement: Early September 2024


The IEEE WIE Committee will be responsible for administering the grant.

This grant will be available to all IEEE members of any grade, of any gender, based on need and the desire to attend an IEEE conference and have competing family care responsibilities. These responsibilities can include but are not limited to, childcare, sick care, and elderly care. Applicants can apply each year, however, applicants who have not previously received the IEEE WIE Family Cares Grant will be given priority and a recipient may only receive this grant once every three years.

Prize Items
