Young Professionals is a membership program to help students transition to young professionals within the larger IEEE community.

Young Professionals Vision:

IEEE Young Professionals Group is a global community of enthusiastic, dynamic, and innovative young professionals engaged for the benefit of humanity.

Young Professionals Mission:

To inspire, energize, empower, and engage young professionals to envision and realize their dreams.

IEEE Region 1 Activity Support for PACE, WIE, YP, and EDU events.

These funds can also be used to provide travel support to attend meetings.  However, the maximum support ($750) must also be matched by Section funds.   If the travel requires less than $1,500 of total support the region will only cover 50%.  In order to qualify for travel support the Section must have carried out at least 3 reported events for the Affinity group.  A Section may apply for either travel support or activity support (not both) for a specific Affinity group.
