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 2021 fall solicitation will be held from October 25, 2021, to November 22, 2021.

IEEE CSS Outreach Fund Solicitation

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

Because of the time needed for grant approval and processing, a CSS member with an institutional affiliation interested in pursuing an Outreach-funded project starting in the third or fourth quarters of 2022 should apply during this solicitation.

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 here.

The CSS Outreach Fund is also featured in an article appearing in the August 2019 issue of the IEEE Control Systems Magazine.

Inquiries, notices of intent, and requests for application materials need to be made directly to Oscar Gonzalez, Outreach Task Force Chair, at ogonzale@odu.edu.

Best wishes,
