AWARDEES

The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) is excited to announce the launch of the application period for the second cohort of awardees for its Engineering for One Planet Mini-Grants Program (EOP MGP). Apply Here.

In July 2022, 13 teams of educators from diverse engineering programs were each awarded $8,000 to pursue new ways to integrate sustainability into their programs. ASEE received more than 100 applications for 10 awards — and added three awards to accommodate strong demand.  

EOP recognizes the importance of including people from historically marginalized and low-income communities who are disproportionately negatively affected by climate and environmental degradation as partners in creating change. As such, a key goal of the inaugural EOP-MGP is to engage diverse faculty and institutions.

Five of the 13 grants were awarded to Minority-Serving Institutions as follows: Two Historically Black Colleges and Universities; and three Hispanic-Serving Institutions — one of which is also an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution. The teams are geographically dispersed and represent a mix of institutional sizes and programs, including engineering and non-engineering disciplines. Faculty are also ethnically and racially diverse.
