IEEE invites proposals for humanitarian projects


The IEEE Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology (SIGHT) Steering Committee is inviting applications for project funding support. SIGHT groups’ major goal is to create opportunities for members to devote time and talents to humanitarian work consistent with IEEE’s Constitution to “bring the benefits of technology to the entire world.”

IEEE SIGHT will support a wide range of projects, and the level of funding support has been between US$500 and US$20,000. The first 2015 application deadline for funding is May 15. Later deadlines will be July 15 and September 15. The project guidelines can be found at
