RAS WiE: Apply Now for IDEA Grants for CASE 2023 in New Zealand
The IEEE RAS Women in Engineering Committee (WiE) has launched a new travel support program to encourage inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility (IDEA) in our community. The IDEA grants aim to make the major IEEE RAS conferences more accessible for underrepresented groups.
The RAS WiE is now accepting IDEA grant applications for the IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (CASE) 2023, to be held in Auckland, New Zealand from 26–30 August 2023. Each awardee will receive a maximum of $3,300 to cover the travel costs of the trip. Please note that awards will be distributed as travel reimbursements. The award will focus on supporting:
- Secondary/undergraduate/graduate students interested in robotics or automation topics
- Underrepresented groups
- People with disabilities
- People who have stepped down from the field for some time and want to return (e.g., due to illness or parental leave)
The Call for Applications is now open with the following schedule.
- Application submission deadline: 30 April 2023 (11:59 PT)
- Decisions: 21 May 2023
To apply for IDEA travel support, please follow the steps in the application form. The IDEA committee will select three applicants to attend CASE 2023.
