The Scholarship Committee (SEAoNY Education Foundation*) is a 501(c) 3 and was established with the goal of encouraging young people to enter the structural engineering profession by supporting area college and university students studying structural engineering. Since then, we have been able to expand our goals thanks to industry generosity. We also award scholarships to graduating high school students from the Urban Assembly School for Design and Construction and support the Center for Architecture Foundation.
The SEAoNY Education Fund has distributed over $210,000 to these great causes. And with greater demands on aging infrastructure, the need for bright young structural engineers is more critical than ever. Please support the Scholarship Committee in helping students and supporting the field of engineering.
