ASHRAE Undergraduate Grants

June 25, 2004

Twenty-two grants, totaling $100,000, have been awarded by ASHRAE to colleges and universities worldwide to promote the study and teaching of HVAC&R, encouraging undergraduate students to pursue related careers. The grants are used to design and construct projects.

ASHRAE’s Student Activities Committee received 33 applications for the 2004 Senior Undergraduate Grant Program, an increase of 24 percent over last year. Grants will be awarded ranging in amounts from $5,000 (the maximum amount available per project) to $2,065.

Since its inception in 1995, the undergraduate grant program has benefited over 100 institutions by providing financial support toward the purchase of materials for engineering, architectural and technical school senior projects. Many of the proposed senior design projects for 2004 will be used as teaching aids in HVAC&R-related courses and laboratories.

Engineering instructors advising senior design projects on any HVAC&R-related topic are invited to submit applications for the 2005 grant program. The 2005 Undergraduate Senior Project grant announcement will be posted on ASHRAE.org in late September. Applications should be submitted to ASHRAE by Dec. 1, 2004.
