  • Please frame and present the certificate to the Scholarship holder within your section at a suitable IEEE (Section or Branch) Meeting.
  • Promote the giving of donations to our foundation (tax receipts issued) in your newsletters.
  • We have a PowerPoint presentation on our website to provide an introduction to our foundation. Please view our website at your next Section executive meeting so you are familiar with who we are and what we do.

In 2001, the IEEE Canadian Foundation awarded $71,000 in grants and scholarships.

These activities promote IEEE memberrship. We hope you will make our activities an integral part of your Section membership development program.
