STUDENT SUBSIDY PROGRAMS FOR THE CCECE 2001 CONFERENCE      


Please note the following when apply for student subsidies:
  • All students need to be IEEE members at the time of registration and the conference. Only IEEE members who are students or who have just graduated will be reimbursed.

  • Several sections have offered to subsidize 50% of the early registration fee for a student or $62.50. In some cases, funding is provided for travel as well. Please note that the student will need to pay the full $125.00 registration fee and travel expenses. Any expenses that the section has agreed to reimburse will be provided during or after the conference. If the section only subsidizes the registration fee please make sure you register as soon as possible. Partial registration reimbursement is only available on a first-come first-serve basis and in many cases the sections have put upper limits on the total amount of funding provided. So not to be left out please make sure you register early. In the case that a section may provide for other expenses please contact the section chair to make sure that your expenses are approved. You will also need to fill out a travel expenses claim in that event.

The IEEE student membership must be valid at the time of registration.

The Hamilton Section has agreed to pay a minimum of 50% of registration fee for individual students presenting papers from the Section. The amount of money can not exceed a total of $500.

Kingston Student Members

The Kingston Section has decided fund the full registration fee for the first 10 students from the section. Note that the students must be IEEE members.


IEEE Canada Foundation Travel Awards for Undergraduate Students

Encouraging more participation from undergraduate students in IEEE Canada conference activities is very important. There are some concerns that our students do not get very excited about research and development, particularly during a booming economy. This inevitably results in a lack of highly qualified people in later years.

The IEEE Canadian Foundation has reserved $5000.00 for travel subsidy (up to maximum $1000.00 per person) for IEEE undergraduate student members who have submitted papers that are accepted by the CCECE.
