United Engineering Foundation Grants Program- CONCEPT PAPER DUE JUNE 1, 2017
Broad-based, interdisciplinary proposals that further the engineering profession as a whole are preferred. Multiple-year proposals are welcome, but funding is awarded for a single year only. Proposals for subsequent years follow procedures identical to that of single-year proposals. No commitment for funding of subsequent years of a multiple-year project should be inferred from funding of a prior year. Projects that are outside “business as usual” of the proposing organization are preferred. Technical research proposals and proposals by individuals are seldom accepted.
