The Bernard S. Finn IEEE History Prize (formerly the IEEE Life Members’ Prize in Electrical History) is supported by the IEEE Life Members’ Fund and administered by the Society for the History of Technology.

The prize is awarded annually to the best paper in the history of electrotechnology-power, electronics, telecommunications, and computer science-published during the preceding year. Any article published in a learned periodical is eligible if it treats the art or engineering aspects of electrotechnology and its practitioners. The article must be written in English, although the journal or periodical in which it appears may be a foreign language publication. The prize consists of a cash award of $1,000 and a certificate. In addition, IEEE will provide a travel subsidy ($750 domestic, $1,000 international) to allow the winner to attend SHOT’s annual meeting, and SHOT will waive the basic registration and awards-banquet fees for the winner.

To nominate an article, please send a copy of the paper to each member of the prize committee.
