The IEEE Foundation, the charitable arm of technology innovation organization IEEE, has issued a Request for Proposals for projects that raise awareness and understanding of science and technology and their potential to address a global challenge, including energy, cybersecurity, security, health care, and sustainability.
Twelve-month grants of up to $100,000 will be awarded to projects that provide technical information at a level that can be understood by the general public; reaches a broad cross-section of society; presents, in a neutral and balanced manner, an analysis of the social benefits and costs of deploying the subject technology; and avoids advocating a particular action but encourages and enables participants to make an informed decision. In addition, projects should directly involve IEEE members, including, as appropriate, student members.
