AIYEHUM is a project competition where young scientists and engineers (between ages of 16 and 35 years) submit proposals of projects which are oriented around humanitarian issues. These proposals can be their curriculum projects or other projects that are developed out of passion.
The short-listed project proposals will be given a a grant of up to US $500 for prototype development. IEEE will assign a mentor for all short-listed teams. All successfully completed projects will be evaluated again and top teams will be partially funded to go to the IEEE Humanitarian Technology Conference to present their work. In addition, IEEE will also give prize money to winning teams.
