IEEE-PES Scholarship
Plus Initiative Program
S A SIGNATURE PROGRAM
of the IEEE Foundation, the
IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Scholarship Plus Initiative
awards multiyear scholarships and
provides career experience opportunities to qualifying U.S., Puerto Rican,
and Canadian electrical engineering
undergraduate students. As long as
the scholar continues to meet renewal
standards, he or she is eligible to
receive up to three years of funding
interspersed with up to two years of
valuable, hands-on career experience.
The program, made possible by
donations to the IEEE PES Scholarship Fund of the IEEE Foundation and
the IEEE Canadian Foundation, is in
its fifth year. Since 2011, more than
900 scholarships have been distributed to more than 550 individuals from
universities across the United States,
Canada, and Puerto Rico.
We are very pleased to announce
that Sargent & Lundy has joined the
list of distinguished organizations

that have provided financial support to the program. Additionally,
ShivKrupa has moved up to the gold
level, while recent contributions
from New York ISO and Ulteig have
moved these organizations up to
the bronze level of support. This
financial support is having an

impact by allowing us to distribute
more scholarships.

Global Series of Conferences
on Transportation Electrification
EVERAL YEARS AGO, A FEW
individuals, under the leadership of Prof. Ali Emadi,
had the vision to create the IEEE Transportation Electrification Conference

and Expo (ITEC). This vision was based
on a solid observation: Transportation
electrification was reaching a critical
mass where dedicated broad-based
meetings, bringing together academic
research and industry developers,
would speed up the transfer of knowledge from the laboratory to the

product. Conversely, in such a forum,
industry could discuss its pressing
technical issues with colleagues and
academics in an informal, collegial setting. This broad conference grew out of
the earlier IEEE Workshop on Power
Electronics in Transportation and its
offshoots. The first ITEC took place
