One scholarship each year, value $1,500.
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.
