Support for Events


There are various ways IEEE can support you when you are organizing events:

Financially:

For student events, there are various institutions you can contact and ask to get financial support:

  • Your Section: For small-scale events, often the Section your branch belongs to is willing to help out. Usually smaller amounts can be the easiest to get from the section.
  • The Region: If you are organizing a larger event, for people from multiple branches, sections or even the whole Region 8, you should definitely let us know at r8sac@ieee.org and we will see how we can assist you.
  • S-PAC: If your event is in a non-technical area or so called “secondary skills”, and fits into the categories of a S-PAC or a S-PAVe you might be able to get support from the Student Professional Awareness Committee. Have a look here to find out who to contact.
  • The IEEE Foundation: For big projects, you might get support from the IEEE Foundation. Please have a look at their criteria, small local events will most likely not get funded by them.
  • The Voluntary Contribution Fund: For countries with a low general income, the Voluntary Contribution Fund might be interested in supporting your projects and activities. Have a look at their website if you want to contact them.

With speakers:

IEEE can help you in various ways if you need speakers for your events. Please have a look at Finding Speakers.

With promoting your events:

If you have an event where people from other student branches are able to take place, let us know at r8sac@ieee.org and we will promote your event through the channels we have available (the Virtual Community, the r8students mailing list, this website, Region 8 News).
