Engraved Award


Up to one award annually. No team nominations will be accepted.


IEEE Members in the United States.

No current member of the IEEE Board of Directors, the IEEE-USA Board of Directors, the IEEE-USA Awards and Recognition Committee, voting members of the IEEE-USA Student Professional Awareness Committee, or IEEE staff may be candidates, or nominate or endorse candidates for this award.

Basis for Judging

The following are guidelines for comparison of the pool of nominees:

  1. Approximate number of students and/or events impacted by this individual
  2. Demonstrated service towards student-professional awareness activities
  3. Demonstrated success in turning student volunteers into active member grade volunteers.


The IEEE-USA Awards and Recognition Committee shall evaluate all proposals and shall select the proposal which, in their judgment, is best and recommend the proposed candidate to the IEEE-USA Board of Directors for approval.


The ARC will develop and arrange plans for the presentation of awards, which will be done at an annual Awards Ceremony held in conjunction with a major IEEE-USA conference or at other appropriate venues, and with consideration to the request of the approved award recipient.


Citation shall be proposed by the person originating the nomination. It will be reviewed and modified as appropriate by the IEEE-USA Awards and Recognition Committee.
