Student Travel Support to PAC23

We are delighted to announce the Student Author Travel Grant, which aims to support approximately 20 African student authors attending the Power Africa Conference. The IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) and Industry Applications Society (IAS) will provide a maximum of 700 USD each to the selected students

This grant is intended to address student concerns and promote African student participation at the conference. It will cover registration fees at the student rate, transportation, accommodation, and on-ground facilitation. While the selected students will need to cover their travel expenses to Marrakech, Morocco, they will be reimbursed after the conference.
