Club or Chapter?

EMBS supports two types of student groups:

EMB Student Clubs – the less formal of the two, and require only one member (student or faculty advisor) to be an EMBS member

EMB Student Branch Chapters – technical subunits of an IEEE student branch, and as such, are generally associated with a IEEE student branch. You will need at least six IEEE student members who are also EMBS members.

For more information, see Establishment and Renewal of EMBS student chapter/club.

Benefits of Student Clubs and Chapters

Participation in the Distinguished Lecturers Program
Through the Distinguished Lecturers Program, EMB student clubs can invite a world-renowned speaker to give a talk at their own university, with financial support from EMBS. EMBS Distinguished Lecturers are all recognised experts in their fields, and known to be wonderful presenters. For more information, see Distinguished Lecturer Program.

Funding for Activities
EMB student clubs and chapters are eligible to apply for funding for special activities. For student clubs, EMBS will provide up to US$500 in matching funds per year for approved activities, using a 2:1 matching ratio.

For student chapters, EMBS will provide up to US$1000 in matching funds per year for approved activities, using a 2:1 matching ratio.

When looking for matching funds check with your local IEEE Section, IEEE Region and your University and local industry in your area.
