What We Fund

Thanks to generous support of ASCE Foundation donors, the Foundation is committed to providing funding to ASCE programs within the four strategic areas of: Student Activities, Leadership, Education and Engineering Programs.

Your gifts to the ASCE Foundation provide support building a stronger and more resilient civil engineering profession. Together we can engineer a brighter future!

Future World Vision Initiative

ASCE has launched a bold, comprehensive project to anticipate, reimagine, and prepare for future changes – FUTURE WORLD VISION.

In reimagining the world, civil engineers must adapt how they design, build, operate, and maintain our infrastructure systems. Using data-driven, in-depth, scenario-planning analysis, Future World Vision puts civil engineers in position to lead not just today, but five decades into the future.

Your support will help create new ways to visualize and plan for the future!

Student Activities Reimbursement Fund (StAR)

The Foundation’s StAR Fund was established to assist students with expenses to participate in official ASCE activities. 

The StAR Fund will provide the opportunity for students to attend official ASCE meetings and conferences across the country. Through their engagement in these leadership and educational activities, the next generation of civil engineers will be able to better understand the field, learn new skills, engage with future peers and employers, and share their ideas and perspectives.

Invest in civil engineering students by donating to the StAR Fund today!
