ASHRAE announced it is awarding a total of $163,000 for the 2023-2024 academic year to fund 34 projects through ASHRAE Undergraduate Program Equipment Grants.
The ASHRAE Undergraduate Program Equipment Grants provides grants to engineering, technical and architectural schools worldwide. Its goal is to increase student knowledge, learning and awareness of the HVACR industry through the design and construction of senior projects. Grants are used to fund equipment and supplies from one academic term up to one year.
“We hope that the projects funded through the ASHRAE Undergraduate Program Equipment Grants will provide students with an invaluable learning experience and also serve as an instrument of advancing HVAC&R innovations. Congratulations to the selected schools.” said Mai Anh Dao, chair of the ASHRAE Student Activities Committee.
A total of 77 applications were submitted for the grants and seven countries were represented among the projects selected. Successful projects were chosen based upon the following guidelines: relevance as an ASHRAE-related topic; long-term student impact of the project; amount of funding requested; and the participating students’ involvement with ASHRAE.
The two highest-ranking project teams are invited to present their projects during the Student Program at the 2024 ASHRAE Winter Conference, taking place Jan. 20-24, 2024 in Chicago.
