The IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) is encouraging and promoting the participation of Region 9 students in the Symposium. To this end, we are sponsoring a special program consisting of 20 grants of USD 1500 each, for supporting the travel expenses of students with papers accepted in the Symposium. The papers should be submitted through the Symposium’s regular process and, once accepted, the student can apply for the grant. Only the best 20 works will be selected. The winners will be acknowledged at the APS/URSI 2023 Awards Ceremony in Portland, OR, USA.

The main goal of this contest is promoting AP-S in the region, and we are asking the sponsored students to help us in this effort. After the Symposium, the awardees must prepare a 2-minute video, addressed to other students, outlining the experience of the student at APS/URSI 2023 Portland conference and outlining the activities and objectives of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society based on the student’s experience. The video will be uploaded to the AP-S social media platforms. Instructions and assistance on how to prepare the video will be provided by the R9 Grants committee and the AP Society.
The contest and grants are supported by the IEEE AP-S Committee for Promoting Equality (COPE) and the IEEE AP-S Membership and Benefits Committee.
Each travel grant recipient will be required to complete appropriate forms needed for delivery and use of the grant money. Disbursement of award funds will be contingent on receipt of the forms. All applicable taxes are the responsibility of the recipient.
