IET@150 Global Engagement Fund for volunteers

To support our 150th anniversary celebrations, we've set up the IET@150 Global Engagement Fund just for IET volunteers to provide some extra financial support for volunteer-led events and celebratory activities throughout the year.

You can bid for up to £2,500 (or local currency equivalent) by downloading and completing the proposal form. Please send it to before 3 April 2020*.

To be eligible for funding, the proposed activities must celebrate our 150th anniversary or be on the topic of sustainability. Our programme of activities aims to reach new audiences in unexpected ways, so the IET@150 Steering Group will give priority to ideas that engage new audiences outside the engineering 'bubble' and in new engineering disciplines or regions.

This is a great chance for you to bring our 150th anniversary celebrations to your area.

We'll let you know if your bid has been successful by 15 May 2020.

If you have any questions about the fund or IET@150, drop us a message at

*If you’re struggling to complete your proposal(s) before the deadline due to the current COVID pandemic, please let us know and we could offer an extension.
