The COVID19 pandemic has affected the world in an unprecedented manner. IEEE R10 SAC gives a Special Call for Proposals related to COVID19 activities so that IEEE Students, Student Branches and Sections can contribute better for the society.
This initiative aims to provide funding for activities or ideas that contribute to solve or assist communities suffering due COVID19 crisis. For example, technical solutions such as assisting robots, building ventilators or 3D printing PPEs to social activities such as COVID19 awareness sessions and community projects.
Open to all IEEE Student Branches and Section Student Activities Committees of Region 10.
Proposals could be submitted by:
The projects can have any number of team members. However, all correspondence should be through Student Branch Chair or Section SAC Chair or SSR, who submits the proposal.
The proposal must be endorsed by IEEE Section Chair or Student Branch Counselor
One section is not allowed to obtain funding for multiple projects under the “R10 2020 Special Call for Proposals related to COVID-19” funding scheme.
The project proposal will be judged for the impact, technical, plan, output….
The judging panel/panels will represent a cross section of various disciplines within the IEEE. Members of the IEEE R10 Student Activities Committee are ineligible to serve as members of the judging panel.
A member of the judging panel may not evaluate a proposal from his/her own Section or educational institute. Judging panel members must declare any possible conflicts of interest when evaluating a proposal.
The decision by the judging panel, as accepted by the R10 Director, will be the final decision and no appeal against the decision will be entertained.
A total of 5 projects will be selected and 400 USD will be funded for each project.
The IEEE R10 Students Activities Coordinator will notify the result of winners by email to the R10 Sections, on the R10 Website and R10 Newsletter.
