The grants will be awarded to a limited number of applicants who have a genuine need for support, and the paper quality will be taken into consideration. All grantees must meet the following eligibility requirements to be considered:

Due to ICIP moving to a fully virtual format, the travel grant program has been suspended since there will no longer be a physical event.

Regarding COVID-19:

Please note that all IEEE volunteer travel must adhere to appropriate guidance from cognizant local public health authorities. Volunteers engaged in IEEE travel at this time voluntarily elect to participate in the activity with knowledge of the dangers involved. Volunteers should understand that IEEE will not indemnify them for any health risk or economic or other loss resulting from exposure to COVID-19 during travel.

IEEE will not reimburse costs associated with mandatory or self-quarantine or isolation associated with IEEE volunteer travel. If there is a risk of quarantine on entering or departing an area, IEEE volunteers should instead plan to participate virtually using IEEE video and teleconferencing tools. IEEE continues to provide videoconferencing, tele-conferencing, and online meeting tools to provide alternatives to travel.
