The IEEE Photonics Society is supporting a travel grant program to encourage the participation and engagement of women and gender minorities at the 2022 IEEE Summer Topicals Meeting Series (IEEE SUM). This program is sponsored by IEEE Women in Photonics, which supports inclusive technical dissemination, career growth, and leadership development of Society members.
The IEEE Photonics Society is awarding a select number of Society members and volunteers of the IEEE Women in Photonics program with $2,500 USD grants each. The grant funds are intended to be used for travel, lodging expenses and registration to the conference.
Recipients from developing nations or in additional financial need may receive a complimentary registration upon review.

A student or early career professional, i.e. undergrad, graduate, post-doc, etc., and/or volunteer for the IEEE Women in Photonics program. Women, men, gender minorities and allies may inclusively apply if they are active members who support IEEE Women in Photonics’ strategic goals; volunteer experience in the community is encouraged.
