Grants

The AEESP Foundation's Grant program is to 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 and scientists.  Based on the feedback provided by previous AEESP Foundation educational grants, the award amount has been increased to $5,000 to increase the range and impact of the proposed educational activities.

A maximum of two awards will be made each calendar year.


Questions regarding the AEESP Foundation grants program and proposal submissions should be sent to Jennifer Becker, AEESP Foundation Chair at jgbecker@mtu.edu.
