SSCS EMERGING ECONOMIES MEMBERSHIP SUBSIDY PROGRAM (EEMSP)
The Solid-State Circuits Society has a program for its chapters called the Emerging Economies Membership Subsidy Program (EEMSP), which compliments the IEEE Mimimum Income Special Considerations Option and provides a significant additional benefit for qualifIed individuals.
IEEE Minimum Income Special Considerations Option
IEEE policy currently allows a 50% discount on IEEE dues, plus one society membership, for any individual whose annual salary is less than $ 12,600 USD. This offering is referred to as the Minimum Income Society Considerations Option.
The SSCS Emerging Ecomomies Membership Subsidy Program will pay the remaining 50% of the IEEE and SSCS dues for one year for new and renewing members who qualify for the IEEE Minimum Income Special Considerations Option, including those who are unemployed.
SSCS will cover up to six (6) members in Joint Chapters per year and up to twelve (12) members in Single Chapters. Although the IEEE Minimum Income Special Consideations Option allows individuals to purchase publication subscriptions for one society at a 50% reduced rate, the SSCS EEMSP does not cover the payment of publication subscriptions.
HOW TO APPLY
If a Chapter has individuals who qualify for the IEEE Minimumu Income Special Considrations Option and the SSCS EEMSP, these individuals need to go to the IEEE Membership Database and create a member profile. Once a profile is created, a customer/member number will be generated. Then the Chapter Chair should send the list of individuals' names, email addresses and customer/member numbers to SSCS Administrator, Lauren Caruso (email@example.com). If a Chapter has individuals who qualify but are renewing, the Chair just needs to send the list of names, email addresses and customer/member number to Lauren. Once received, Lauren will take care of obtaining the memberships for the individuals.
