IEEE Honorary Membership is an honorary type of membership of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), that is given for life to an individual. It is awarded by the board of directors of IEEE to people 'who have rendered meritorious service to humanity in [the] IEEE's designated fields of interest' while not being members of IEEE.

This membership provides all the rights and privileges of a normal IEEE membership, except the right to hold an IEEE office.

The recipients of this grade will receive a certificate, an 'Honorary Member' pin and a crystal sculpture.[1]
