IEEE Humanitarian Programs


EDS members interested in devoting their time and talents to an IEEE humanitarian project will find that there are many opportunities. 

The Institute has a very informative article summarizing IEEE humanitarian programs, titled "IEEE Resources to Help Members Get Involved in Social Causes." 

We encourage current EDS chapters to form a SIGHT group and qualify for the $250 seed funding. 

Should you submit a proposal to start a new SIGHT group and participate in any of the IEEE humanitarian programs listed below, please make sure to indicate the Electron Devices Society as your Operating Unit (OU).
