Coming soon…….

After consultation with student-led electronics societies at universities across the UK, the IE is delighted to announce that in mid-November 2021 it will launch its new Societies Fund.

This fund is specifically aimed at financial contribution to student-led, electronics-related societies at UK universities.

Grants up to £300 will be awarded through a low-effort, but competitive, application process. One grant can be awarded per society per year, but grants can be awarded year-on-year (subject to re-application).

In response to guidance from society committees and the IE Young Professionals Panel,  there are no limitations on how the grant can be spent, provided it contributes to the development, expansion and/or sustainability of the society.
