Structural Engineering Fellowship
The $20,000 Structural Engineering Fellowship is awarded annually to a graduating student based in the United States who specializes in structural engineering to conduct independent travel and research that contributes to the SOM Foundation’s current topic. The Structural Engineering Fellowship was created in 1998 to support research that has the potential to influence the practice and teaching of how structures can positively impact our built environment.
Applicants must be graduating with a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or PhD in civil and environmental engineering or architectural engineering with a specialization in structural engineering from a professionally accredited degree program in the United States. US citizenship is not required. Applicants must intend to enter the professional practice of structural engineering. The winning applicant will be required to thoroughly document their research findings and develop conclusions or suggestions for applications to teaching and/or professional practice.
