Membership Fee Subsidy Program (IT-FSP)
IEEE policy currently allows a 50% discount on IEEE
dues and one society membership for any individual whose annual
salary is less than US $10,100. This offering is referred to as
the Minimum Income Special Considerations Option. The Information
Theory Society now has a new program called the Membership Fee Subsidy
Program (MFSP), which will both complement the IEEE Minimum Income
offering and provide a significant additional benefit for qualified
With the IT Membership Fee Subsidy Program, IT will
pay the other 50% of the IEEE and IT dues that are not covered by
IEEE for individuals qualifying for the Minimum Income option for
a maximum of 20 individuals. These individuals can be either prospective
new members or existing members. The program also will cover student
members that reside in countries that would qualify as Minimum Income.
If an individual qualifies for the reduced IEEE Minimum
Income offering and the IT-FSP, the application forms and renewal
bills should be mailed to the IT treasurer. Once received, the application
forms and bills will be coded by the treasurer with a special account
number and submitted to the pertinent IEEE department for processing.
Those IT members receiving the IT-FSP benefits should
fulfill the obligation to promote the IT activities.
For any questions concerning the program, please contact
David Neuhoff, IT membership chair.
