The NCSEA Grant Program has been developed to assist Member Organizations (SEAs) in growing their Association and promoting the structural engineering field. The Grant Program is supported by the NCSEA Foundation, which was established to support the non-profit activities of NCSEA and its Member Organizations. The Purpose of the Foundation is to fund qualifying initiatives and activities that are intended to aid in the advancement of the science and practice of Structural Engineering as well as promote technical development, education, outreach, and engagement within NCSEA’s Member Organizations.
