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. 


2021 Grant Recipients

    • SEANM received a grant to start a new Young Member Group for college students, recent graduates, and young engineers to connect, network, and learn. 

    • SEAONC was awarded grants to fund an outreach program to build STEM awareness and to support a local Structural Engineering Engagement and Equity (SE3) Symposium featuring research and data on racial demographics of the local structural engineering field and conversation about what can be done to promote broader attraction and retention of all structural engineers. 

    • SEASC will use their grant money to launch a chapter of the Engineers Alliance for the Arts high school student bridge design project, a ten-week curriculum where volunteer structural engineers will visit participating high school classrooms weekly to lead student groups through conceptualization, design, construction, testing and presentation of foamboard bridges.

    • SEAOSC will put their grants to use implementing a public speaking workshop for their Young Member Group to kick off a year-long learning program, and a Diversity Equity Inclusion roundtable event to increase participation and engagement in diversity and inclusion efforts in the local structural engineering community.
