TryEngineering Summer Institute

An exciting ten day, on-campus engineering camp for high school students held at three premier universities across the United States in 2019.

Donate to the TESI Scholarship Fund via IEEE's 501-c-3 donation portal
IEEE, and some of our Professional Societies, has already created and funded a large number of scholarships to TESI. We are out to make a difference in the lives of children who want to find a future as an engineer and do not see, or cannot even get on, the path to creating a new future for themselves. Every scholarship winner attends as a residential student. We believe the most transformative way to impact our scholarship students is to provide the full residential experience, so eevery scholarship winner is a residential student is immersed in the collegiate atmosphere and has the chance to soak up their new future.

IEEE is a non-profit 501-C-3 organization so your donation is tax-deductible. You can donate as many dollars as you would like; any donor who donates 10 spots will be invited to be a reader, if they would like to join that group!

We invite you to contribute to this fund, and to the lives of these future engineers!

Here are a couple of testimonials from scholarship students, to give you a sense of the kind of impact our programs have:

"I live in Olympia, the capital of Washington state. I applied for the scholarship because I thought going to an engineering institute to be taught by real engineers would be an amazing experience. When I found I won the scholarship I was over the moon. I knew this would be a life changing experience, which it was, and I was so happy to figure out that I would be at a summer institute with people that had the same interests as me. Going into TryEngineering Summer Institute, I knew I wanted to be an engineer, but not really what type of engineer. The Institute not only taught me more about engineering, but also helped me figure out what type of engineer I wanted to be. The program was an unforgettable time learning about the many different types of engineering and making new friends that shared many of my same interest. TESI taught me about hydraulics, aerospace, electrical, civil, computer, and aviation based engineering. I see my future clearer now, not only knowing that I want to go into engineering as a career, but what type of engineering I find most interesting and what to take further classes on. A very enjoyable part of the TryEngineering Summer Institute was spending those two weeks with people who wanted to be there to learn and wanted to learn more about something that sparked all of our interests, engineering. I made many new friends throughout the program from all around of the state of California, Nevada, New York, and Japan. I had such an amazing time with the wonderful R.A.s and Teachers and learned so much throughout my time at TESI. I would like to say thank out so very much for funding my scholarship because it truly was a life changing experience that any student interested in engineering should think about attending."

Here is another one:

"When I won the scholarship, I was ecstatic because from reading the description and reviews of the camp, I knew that it would allow me to enhance my love for engineering while experiencing all of the different disciplines and honing in on one to peruse as a career. During the program, I learned the basics of engineering such as soldering and simple circuitry. As the days went on, our classes got more advanced and more specific in the types of engineering they were highlighting. One of my favorite activities was building the smart cars because it allowed me to combine our ability to code Arduino with our mechanical engineering skills of building the body of the car. Another exciting activity that we did was the mars colony discussion. This activity was enjoyable for me because it allowed me to communicate with my peers and to express my ideas in a simulated engineering job setting. Before I attended the summer camp, I was not sure if I was cut out to be an engineer. But after my wonderful experience at the IEEE Try Engineering Summer Institute, I am sure that this will be the right career path for me. Now that I have experienced all of the disciplines of engineering, I am better educated in the field as a whole, and I have all of the information I need to choose a specific field of engineering to have a career in. To the people that funded my scholarship, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. The only reason that I was able to experience a great city in California and become more independent while staying in college dorms is because of you. The IEEE association has given me a priceless experience that will stay with me for the rest of my life. The new friends that I made and the trust that was established between the RA’s and TA’s is not comparable to anything else. I am immensely grateful for this experience and I hope that other people attend this camp to get the same feeling of joy, excitement, and accomplishment."

Join us in making a difference in the lives of students like these by donating right now to our scholarship fund. Every dollar raised here increases our fund. If we end up with enough funds for any whole number of spots and only part of the last spot is funded, we will round it up and include that spot too! We will round it up, so every dollar counts!

TESI Scholarships ensure that even more students can attend our program.  They are open to those who are interested and qualify.  Make a difference now.
