2023 Spring IEEE CSS Outreach Fund Solicitation

The IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS) Outreach Fund provides grants for projects that will benefit CSS members and the control community in general. Since its inception in 2011, the Fund has funded more than 80 grants on behalf of a diverse group of CSS member-led activities.

The CSS Outreach Task Force is pleased to announce that the window for proposal submission for its 2023 spring solicitation will be held from April 1, 2023, to April 30, 2023.

The maximum amount that can be requested for an Outreach project is USD$20K.

To ensure sufficient time for grant approval and processing, CSS members affiliated with institutions interested in pursuing an Outreach-funded project beginning no earlier than the fourth quarter of 2023 or in 2024 should submit their application during the current solicitation period.

Information regarding the program, which includes proposal requirements descriptions, a list of current and past funded projects, and a 2017 informative 10-minute video overview, is found at:
