2023 First Round of Annual Fund Grants Awarded

The AIChE Foundation is pleased to announce the four projects that have been awarded funding for the 2023 first grant cycle of the Annual Fund, a vital source of support for the Foundation’s key programs and initiatives. Bi-annually, Operating Councils are invited to submit grant proposals for innovative projects that will bolster the Doing a World of Good campaign’s transformative priorities in advancing the chemical engineering profession.

We are grateful to the AIChE Foundation Board of Trustees Members and Staff who have put in so much time and effort to help us with this initiative! — Victoria Muir, The Young Professionals Committee (YPC) Past Chair, 3MT

2023 First Round Project Summaries:

The Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE) Program Internship program for engineering students (selected by AIChE) that exposes them to the policy-making process in Washington, D.C. and illustrates engineers’ involvement in public policy recommendations
Scalable and Sustainable Integration of IDEAL Principles in ChemE Curricula Task force to support the long-term integration of inclusion, diversity, equity, anti-racism, and learning (IDEAL) principles into chemical engineering curricula in scalable and sustainable ways
2023 AIChE Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition Competition that challenges graduate students to present their research in a clear and concise manner, sharpening their communication skills and showcasing their research to a wider audience
Using Comics to Promote Chemical Engineering to High School and First-Year College Students Comics that will introduce students to the exciting world of chemical engineering and its potential career pathways, inspiring the next generation of chemical engineers and increasing awareness of the field

These four successful grant proposals demonstrate AIChE's commitment to transforming the chemical engineering profession and supporting the next generation of STEM leaders. The funding of these proposals is made possible by our devoted Annual Fund donors, whose sustained generosity enables the Foundation to be a partner in this crucial work.

The next funding cycle is open with a deadline of May 17, 2023, and you can submit your proposal here. If you have any questions regarding the grant funding process, please contact
