IEEE-USA Online Engineering Video Scholarship Competition

In October, IEEE-USA launched an online video competition for undergraduate engineering students calling on participants to create 90-second video clips, aimed at 11-13 year-olds, that reinforce engineers’ contributions to the quality of life and help debunk engineering stereotypes. IEEE-USA will award seven scholarship prizes totaling $10,000 to the most creative and effective video clips highlighting the theme “How Engineers Make a World of Difference.” The competition is open to all U.S. undergraduate students in engineering and computer science. All entries must be submitted through YouTube by midnight (Eastern Time) on Friday, 18 January 2008.

IEEE-USA Mass Media Fellows

Since 2000, in conjunction with the AAAS program, IEEE-USA Engineering Mass Media Fellows have backed nine U.S. IEEE undergraduate and gradate students who have helped journalists in print and broadcast fields communicate authoritatively to the public about science, engineering and technology. IEEE-USA Mass Media Fellows have been engaged by such media outlets as “Scientific American,” the “Chicago Tribune” and WNBC-TV. Mass Media Fellows must be at least a senior in college majoring in mathematics; engineering; or the natural, physical, health, computer or social sciences. Fellows review their experiences in the program in articles appearing in the November 2007 INSTITUTE ONLINE and in the November-December 2007 IEEE POTENTIALS. Deadline for applications is Tuesday, 15 January 2008.
