Freeman Fellowship

Description

The Freeman Fellowship may be presented annually to not more than three graduate civil engineering students, who will use the fellowship for tuition, research, and living expenses. The purpose of the fellowship is to further the education of worthy students in hydraulic engineering. At the time of application, the individual must be a member of the Society of any grade and in good standing at the time of application and award. Previous recipients of the fellowship are eligible to apply in any succeeding competition for these awards provided the other requirements of eligibility are satisfied. The amount of the fellowship will be determined annually by and subject to approval of the Executive Committee of the ASCE Board of Direction based on income from the fund endowment. The committee reserves the right to recommend that no award be made in a particular year if no meritorious applications are received. Selection is based on (a) technical and social value of the proposed research. Preference is given to research which will contribute to the solution of conflicting engineering issues involving social, economic, environmental, or political concerns or compromises; (b) ability of the proposed research to meet the overall objective of the fellowship; (c) relevant professional experience, previous research or course of study either as a practitioner or in academia; (d) prior contribution to the engineering profession and/or the hydraulic engineering. Applications are required to be submitted online; mailed applications will no longer be accepted. A minimum of two recommendation letters are required, one of which must be from a faculty member. Applicants must submit a description of their proposed research and its objectives. It must be signed by an institutional representative indicating that the proposed research is acceptable.
