Advancing the Practice of Structural Engineering
June 2019
Could an NCSEA Grant Kickstart Your SEA's Next Project?
The NCSEA Grant Program was developed in 2015 to award SEAs funding for projects that grow and promote their SEA and the structural engineering field in accordance with the NCSEA Mission Statement: NCSEA advances the practice of structural engineering by representing and strengthening its Member Organizations.
Any NCSEA Member Organization or member of a Member Organization is eligible to submit a grant application, as long as the application has been reviewed and approved by the Member Organization. 
Past Grant recipients have used their funds to support endeavors as hosting symposiums and networking events for members, ehancing mentoring programs, setting up Engineering for the Arts initiatives, and updating dated studies. Some SEAs used their grants to purchase items that could be used to enhance their outreach efforts.
