Environmental engineers use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to make the air, water and land better and safer for humans. To engage student and educators in this discipline, and foster the impact of environmental engineering education in communities around the world, the ASME Environmental Engineering Division (EED) announces an Environmental Engineering Education Support Program. This program will fund a maximum of $25,000 per year (no more than five proposals will be funded with a limit of $5,000 per award) to students, educators and EED members who propose interesting ways to impact environmental education in their communities. Proposals (maximum 5 pages in length) should be submitted electronically by November 1, 2015 to edelsonm2@asme.org. Projects that pair an EED member with an educator shall describe how funds will be shared between the two. The expectation is that the majority share of funding will support the educator. Please note: This is an experimental program and EED encourages the widest latitude of projects consistent with the above guidelines. We expect, over time, to better understand what “works” and at that time we might adjust the criteria for our selections.
