Consistent with our aim of “promoting the science and practice of electrical and electronics engineering”, the IEEE Victorian Section is pleased to offer limited financial support to an IEEE Victorian Section member working in industry or government wishing to travel to present an accepted paper at an IEEE or approved non-IEEE conference..

The Section already offers student members a number of travel grants each year, and the full member one is intended to encourage learned publications from practising engineers.
