IEEE Canada Power Quality Scholarship
One scholarship each year, value $1,500.
endowed grants awarded
The IEEE Sections in Alberta (Northern Canada and Southern Alberta)
organized the "Annual Alberta Exposition and Conference on Power Quality
Issues" in 1988. The conference ran successfully from 1988 to 1995 and
during that time generated a considerable surplus. The organizers of the
conference wanted to set up an annual Power Quality Scholarship which
would be available to an IEEE student member in full time attendance at
either the University of Alberta or the University of Calgary.
The trustees of the conference transfered these funds as a directed gift to
the IEEE Canadian Foundation to establish and administer this scholarship.
To recognize excellence in students who demonstrate an awareness of power
quality issues and who indicate their intent to pursue a professional career
in the Electric Power Industry.
All IEEE student members in full time attendance at either the University of
Alberta or the University of Calgary, who are in their penultimate undergraduate year and whose program of study includes courses in electric power engineering. There should not be more than one candidate from each University (University of Alberta and University of Calgary).
Basis of Selection
Individuals will be evaluated based on (a) the nomination form submitted
by the faculty member and (b) the information form completed by the
nominated student - and include the following criteria:
1. Level of involvement and sucess in electric power related courses
2. Knowledge of Power Quality issues
3. Expectation of a future career in the electric power area
4. Perceived value of this scholarship
The Decision Process Faculty
members (preferably those who are involved in the power area) are

the Section Chair at a suitable IEEE (Branch or Section) Meeting.
