The deadline to apply is December 1st, 2017. Grantees will be announced by mid-December to allow for appropriate planning. Interested Chapter Leaders can apply here Travel Grant Submission.


Does your chapter have a project idea for next year? We want to help you out! Engineers for a Sustainable World is excited to release this Request for Proposals (RFP) for the 2018 Small Projects Grants.

These $500 grants support chapters with exciting ideas that do not fit in one of ESW’s ongoing partnership-based initiatives. These grants will be distributed in early February, 2018, for use anytime during the 2018 year. For more information, please contact Projects & Education Director Elizabeth Schultz at eschultz@eswusa.org.
