IEEE Power and Energy Society Scholarship Plus Initiative

The PES Scholarship Plus Initiative provides scholarships and real world experience to undergraduates who are interested in power and energy engineering careers.  This program was established to encourage undergraduate students to pursue careers in power and energy engineering where the need is the greatest. 

The recent financial commitments from the Hoveida Family Foundation and John and Jo-Ann McDonald has put the Scholarship Program in an excellent position to distribute scholarships in 2022 and beyond.  

The deadline for the scholarship has been moved to 1 May 2022.   Students can get funding for up to 3 years ($2,000 year 1 & 2, $3,000 for 3rd year). Additionally, the top student in each will be recognized as the John W. Estey Outstanding Scholar and receive an additional $6,000.

Eligible students are:

  • Full-time, undergraduates electrical engineering majors
  • GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Citizens or permanent residents of the U.S., Puerto Rico, or Canada
  • Willing to take power classes
