United Engineering Foundation Grants
Deadline: June 1, 2011 (Concept papers due)
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. Proposals are accepted only from U.S. based
organizations classified by the Internal Revenue Service as having 501(c)(3) status. While all proposals meeting the requirements
1) U.S. based organizations having 501(c)(3) status,
2) established deadlines, and
3) page limitations
to be considered, certain UEF preferences should be understood by proposers:
• Broad-based, interdisciplinary proposals that further the engineering profession as a whole are preferred.
• Multiple-year 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.
• Projects that are outside "business as usual" of the proposing organization are preferred.
Technical research proposals and proposals by individuals are seldom accepted.
