This award is established to provide travel support to enable graduate students who are primary author on a paper in the area of radar signal processing accepted for presentation during the annual IEEE Radar Conference to attend the conference and present their research. The primary author is the student who presents the paper and attends the conference in person. Up to 4% of the prior year fund IEEE Foundation fund balance may be used. Every five years when the International Radar Conference is held in the United States an additional 1% of the prior year fund balance may be used for the same purpose. Support shall be provided in the form of reimbursement after the student has attended and presented their accepted paper.
This is an annual award. Every 5 years it occurs twice in one year. Award will be given only if a suitable awardee is identified.
Selection will be based on paper quality, and distance needed to travel. Since this is a travel grant, the greater the distance, the more likelihood of selection.
