IMS Project Connect - 2022 International Microwave Symposium (IMS)

IMS Project Connect is soliciting applications from eligible undergraduate and graduate students to participate in the 2022 International Microwave Symposium (IMS) this June, as part of the 9th cohort of Project Connect students. Over 130 students from 40 universities have participated in Project Connect since 2014, with proven success in broadening participation in the microwave field. Detailed information about the event and registration instructions are at https://ims-ieee.org/project-connect.  Students can also start the application process directly at https://forms.gle/LAosn2jREKVu6m2J6 without going to the IMS website.

Please help us to spread the word among students and faculty in your organization. Personal interactions with potential student applicants are instrumental in getting students to apply. We have also seen that students who have internships during the week of the symposium are still able to get approval from their employer to attend this professional development activity.

Selected students will receive a travel award to attend the symposium and participate in a number of professional development activities, grow their own network, and of course, get to know much more about the microwave industry. This is an excellent way to encourage undergraduate students in your school to pursue a graduate degree in RF/microwave engineering, and to help new graduate students experience the community first-hand.

Candidates must be at least 18 years old as of June 19, 2022 and members of under-represented groups in engineering. For example, in the United States these groups include women, American Indian/Native, African American/Black, Hispanic American/Latino, Native Hawaiian and Native Alaskan. There are no citizenship requirements. Application details are included in the flyer.

The first application deadline is February 25, 2022.

Thank you!
