Chapter Grants Program

Chapter activities and events are the lifeblood of our membership and the IEEE Computer Society is excited to support chapters with funds to help make extraordinary chapter events possible.

Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis and reviewed on a rolling basis. Selected proposals will favor applications that propose meaningful chapter activities and document a path to chapter growth.

Applications can be submitted for small (up to $500), a medium ($500 to $1000), or large grants ($1000 to $2000 ). In lieu of monetary funds chapters applications may be submitted for a 12 month Zoom Meeting license. Larger grants should show how the planned activities will impact the chapter, the Computer Society and/or the world.

Need a speaker for your event? Make sure to visit our Distinguished Visitor Page.

Funds are limited so chapters are encouraged to plan out yearly activities and apply early. Chapters may apply for more than one grant.

To apply for a chapter grant a chapter officer must fill out the Chapter Grant Request Form. 

Final report

A final report will be required within 30 days of completing your activity. Information, regarding how to submit the final report, will be provided to those who receive the grant.
