United Engineering Foundation
DUE: JUN 1, concept papers
AUG 1, invited formal proposals
The United Engineering Foundation advances the engineering arts and sciences for the welfare of humanity. It supports
engineering and education by, among other means, making grants. Grants should be consistent with advancing engineering.
The UEF Board of Trustees evaluates and judges proposals in view of the UEF mission, the perceived ability of
the proposal and proposer(s) to further that mission, and the available funding. While all proposals meeting established
deadlines and page requirements will be considered, certain UEF preferences should be understood by proposers: (a)
Broad-based, interdisciplinary proposals that further the engineering profession as a whole are preferred. (b) Multipleyear
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. (c) Projects that are outside "business as usual" of the proposing
organization are preferred. (d) Technical research proposals and proposals by individuals are seldom accepted.
ELIGIBILITY: Proposals are accepted from not-for-profit organizations, individuals, and groups of such entities.
FUNDING: It is anticipated that total funding available for 2011 will be in the $700,000 to $750,000 range.
