Student Volunteer Program
Fostering IEEE Student Members in support of early-career engagements and IEEE volunteer activities
The Student Volunteer Program supports and enables IEEE technical and organizational activities through creating a pipeline of skilled student volunteers to participate in short or long duration projects, while also increasing IEEE membership and creating mentorship relationships.
The Student Volunteer Program creates opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students in IEEE-relevant majors to gain broad exposure to the IEEE technical and organizational activities, support student career growth, enhance the value of IEEE membership, and create improved career opportunities.
The IEEE Student Volunteer Program (SVP) is an activity within IEEE that serves IEEE global membership by providing opportunities for IEEE student members to participate in an intern-like capacity supporting IEEE projects. Participating IEEE Student Volunteers gain exposure to real-world problems, acquire valuable practical experience, and build professional networks. Documented IEEE volunteer hours support graduation requirements and career-building goals. The IEEE Student Volunteer Program is an international project, with intent to connect students, universities, and industry to IEEE projects and activities world-wide.
The SVP has new opportunities for current and prospective IEEE Student Members. SVP student volunteers will get broad exposure to the IEEE with specific development of contacts and understanding relevant to their declared major and IEEE discipline area, leading to opportunities for academic growth, professional network development, and career opportunities. The SVP team is international, and volunteers will work remotely, with no travel required. Volunteer positions will be filled on a rolling basis and will be appointed for 6 months with an option to extend as needed. The anticipated level of effort is from one to ten hours per week, which may be adjusted to meet student needs for a specific number of volunteer hours to support graduation requirements. Specific assignments will be negotiated between the SVP team, the student, and the project owner. The actual duration and tasks for each assignment are dependent on the project owner’s needs.
