The IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) is happy to announce a new award to increase women’s visibility at the annual IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting.

The grant is named after our late colleague Prof. Mojgan Daneshmand, whose research achievements and commitments to the Antennas and Propagation Society are a model to promote women.

There will be 12 grants ($1,500 each) annually, which will preferably be awarded to applicants across the 6 continents. In addition to the grant, the Symposium registration fee and banquet ticket are covered by the IEEE Antennas and Propagation.


  • Applicants must be women scientists, including Master, Ph.D. students and engineers from the industry
  • Applicants cannot have more than 10 years of experience after the Ph.D. degree or 10 years of industry experience
  • Applicants must be the first author of an accepted paper (oral or poster) at the Symposium.
