New for September 2016: Project Connect is an outreach program by the IEEE, which since 2014 has brought undergraduate and first-year graduate students from underrepresented groups in engineering to International Microwave Symposium (IMS) for professional development. We'll do whatever we can to help out with this worthy project. Below we will summarize what you need to know. If you are interested or know someone who might be, check out the "Project Connect" link on this year's IMS page.  Or, you can check out their Facebook page here:

What is it? Project Connect brings senior-year or first-year graduate students to IMS for three days, to enjoy a fire hose of indoctrination in the microwave community. This next year (2017) the IMS will be in Hawaii. Aloha!

Who can apply? Candidates should be members of under-represented groups in engineering. For example, in the United States these groups include women, American Indian/Native, African American/Black and Hispanic American/Latino.

Who do you contact? Follow the IMS link provided... if we give out a name, with our luck it will change.

When is the deadline? February 28, 2017, but you'd better get your ducks in a row well before that.

What does it cost? This is the best part, all of your expenses are picked up by the IEEE.

What are the qualifications? You will need your transcripts, a letter of recommendation, and a short video of yourself. Get the cameras rolling! Send Microwaves101 some content, and we will supply you with a LOR for what it's worth...
