Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS in IEEE) is hosting a workshop at the 2022 IEEE-HKN Student Leadership Conference on October 30th. The workshop titled Win up to 10k USD for your Engineering Service Projects through EPICS in IEEE is for students interested in submitting service-learning project proposals for consideration of funding up to 10,000 USD.

“EPICS in IEEE is looking forward to meeting with HKN students and helping them to think about how they can make a difference in their communities,” says Stephanie Gillespie, current chair of the EPICS in IEEE Committee. “We hope that this workshop will help spark ideas and give the students a roadmap for developing a proposal.”

EPICS in IEEE provides financial grants to student groups to participate in and complete service-learning projects in their communities in the areas of human services, environment, access and abilities, or education and outreach. The workshop will introduce EPICS in IEEE and facilitate brainstorming sessions that could turn your HKN chapter’s ideas into future funding proposals. Participating in an EPICS in IEEE project provides HKN members with a unique hands-on service hours experience that helps prepare them for their future careers. With service as a key part of the HKN mission, we believe that service learning is a natural fit for HKN chapters to have 

“We are thrilled to have EPICS in IEEE participate in our Student Leadership Conference to help students write grant proposals to fund their community service projects. EPICS has supported HKN chapters with successful community projects in the past such as “Buddy the Dog” cutting-edge prosthetics for dogs and “Go Baby Go” ride on cars for children with disabilities. This partnership is great for our students and I look forward to seeing what new projects they will create” says Nancy Ostin, Director, IEEE-HKN
