Gifts from ASCE members enable the ASCE Foundation to support a full suite of ASCE educational programs. These programs support civil engineers working to inspire current and future civil engineers.

ASCE educational programs are designed to encourage civil engineers to play a central role in their community and to provide opportunities for hands-on experiences and exploration of engineering. The Foundation supports the ExCEEd teaching workshops, provides educational grants to four Student Members to attend ASCE’s Convention, and ASCE scholarships were provided from funds endowed by ASCE members through the Foundation.

Future World Vision Initiative

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!

Briaud Students Fund

The Briaud Students Fund will provide the opportunity for students to attend official ASCE meetings and conference 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.

ExCEEd Teaching Workshops

Excellence in Civil Engineering Education (ExCEEd) Teaching Workshop is a six-day practicum that provides engineering educators with an opportunity to improve their teaching abilities. ASCE has successfully presented this workshop each summer for over twenty years. Faculty members across the country and around the world have benefited from this workshop. Your generous support helps fund this important program. In 2018, Foundation donors helped support 70 civil, architectural and construction engineering faculty and 36 mentors and assistant mentors.
