AEESP Funding Request Policy

The AEESP Board will consider requests to provide supplemental support for activities organized by AEESP members.  Requests for support for amounts up to $2,500 should be made via a 1-2 page letter that must contain the following information: (1) The amount of funding requested; (2)  any co-funding received or sought and the source(s) of the potential co-funding; (3) a description of the activity for which the member is seeking funding and how the AEESP funds will be used; (4) an estimation of the number of AEESP members involved in the activity and how those AEESP members will be affected by the funding.

In evaluating whether AEESP will fund the activity, the following criteria are collectively considered: (1) the amount of funding requested; (2) the impact and/or reach of the activity to the AEESP community; (3) consideration of how the activity incorporates broader participation of groups underrepresented in the environmental engineering and sciences field; and (4) the availability of funds.

After funds are spent, AEESP requests a short summary of the event for the next Newsletter and how the funds were used. Evaluation of requests will occur during quarterly AEESP Board meetings.  Please contact the current AEESP Treasurer with questions.
