Engineering for Human Welfare – May 3

Posted by United Engineering Foundation on March 30, 2021

United Engineering Foundation Invites Concept Papers for Engineering Projects

The United Engineering Foundation (UEF) is the successor organization to the United Engineering Society (UES), which was founded in 1904 with the generous support of Andrew Carnegie. Today, UEF works to advance the engineering arts and sciences for the welfare of humanity.

To that end, the foundation welcomes concept papers for its grants program. Through the program, grants will be awarded in support of proposals and programs in which the primary aim is to advance engineering for the welfare of humanity. Proposals must be consistent with the mission of UEF and include programs that focus on advancing engineering.

Collaborative, broad-based, interdisciplinary proposals that further the engineering profession as a whole are preferred, as are projects that are outside “business as usual” of the proposing organization. Technical research proposals and proposals by individuals are seldom accepted.

To be eligible, applicants must be based in the U.S and be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Concept papers are due May 3. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by August 2, 2021.

See the United Engineering Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: May 3, 2021 (Concept Papers)
