Grants

The AEESP Foundation provides small awards that allow individuals and/or organizations to utilize expertise garnered from research and teaching at the university level to improve K-12 instruction, with the goal of preparing students to be future environmental engineers. A maximum of three awards of up to $750 each will be provided each year.

Proposals for support of projects in the interest of enhanced knowledge in and resolution of environmental problems may be sent to Brian Schorr, Office Manager at bschorr@aeesp.org.
