The IEEE PES GM 2016 organizing committee and the PES Power Engineering Education Committee are happy to announce that there will be both a Student Support Program and a Student Poster Contest at the 2016 GM in Boston, MA. More information on other activities for students will be posted on the GM 2016 website.

Student Support Program

At the GM 2016, we will offer free hotel accommodation to a limited number of students who apply for this support. In case the number of applicants exceeds the number of students we are able to accommodate, there will be prioritization based on (a) whether a student is submitting a poster in the student poster contest or has an accepted technical paper; (b) status, i.e., undergrad/grad --- undergraduates receive higher priority; (c) timely application; (d) merit of application; (e) support provided by the student's advisor. (f) previous participation in PEEC sponsored programs; and, (g) number of accepted applicants from any given university. Women, minorities and undergraduates are especially encouraged to apply. Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted.

In order to be selected for free accommodation it is not essential to have a technical paper accepted at the Conference, or to enter in the Student Poster Contest, but in the event that there are more student applicants than we can support, the applications will be prioritized on the above criteria for support.

We plan to notify students of acceptance into this program by 1st April 2016.

Please note that no funds will be available from PEEC to help with travel costs.

Note you MUST register for the 
GM 2016 to register and receive support from PEEC, you must be a current student member of the IEEE. 

Applications for the student support program must be completed using the on-line application form.

Faculty/Supervisors/Sponsors can recommend their students using this on-line recommendation form.

The deadline for applying for the student support program and faculty/supervisors/sponsors recommendation submission is March 15th, 2016 (5 P.M. USA Eastern Standard Time).
