For the Best & Brightest

PES is committed to shaping the future of the power and energy industry through the IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Initiative. Our undergraduate engineering scholarships aim to accomplish this goal by attracting highly qualified engineering students to the field. These students are the very individuals who will one day develop new green technologies, build the smart grid and change the way we generate and utilize power.

The IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Initiative supports these promising students through financial assistance in the increasingly expensive enterprise of undergraduate studies. Funds are paid directly to univeristy to help defray educational costs.  Scholarship recipients will receive the following amounts assuming continued qualification:
  • US$2,000 for each of the first two years
  • US$3,000 for third year
Recipients of PES engineering scholarships are high achieving undergraduate students in electrical engineering who have committed to exploring the power and energy fields through both coursework and career experiences. These students will graduate with the knowledge and skills necessary to begin making an impact across the power and energy industry.PES Scholar Collage 09
