The IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Initiative supports promising students through financial assistance in the increasingly expensive enterprise of undergraduate studies. Funds are paid directly to university to help defray educational costs. 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.
