The AEESP Foundation provides small awards that allow individuals and/or organizations to utilize expertise garnered from research and teaching at the university level to improve K-12 instruction, with the goal of preparing students to be future environmental engineers. A maximum of three awards of up to $750 each will be provided each year.
The following final reports were submitted by two grant recipients on how their funding helped educate local students in their community. AEESP will continue to post reports like these as more grant recipients conclude their projects.
