2015 US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

The Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering Grants

 The Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering Grants

A Follow-Up Program to the U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium  

Since 2011, the National Academy of Engineering has awarded the Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering Grants. Two grants of $30,000 each will be awarded.

These grants provide seed funding for the U.S. FOE participants who are at U.S.-based institutions to enable further pursuit of important new interdisciplinaryresearch and projects stimulated by the U.S. FOE symposia. They are intended to provide seed money 1) for support of students and post docs in a research effort or technical work, the purchase of equipment, and/or the acquisition of preliminary data that will support competition for larger awards from other sources, of 2) for execution of a discrete technical project of an interdisciplinary nature that will contribute to innovation in a particular area.
