The Steel Structures Education Foundation has awarded 85 research grants since 1995 to full-time members of engineering faculties of Canadian universities. Grants are awarded on subjects judged to be of value in advancing the use of steel in construction and are awarded at the discretion of the SSEF on the merits of the applications received. Each grant is awarded for a one-year period. The total value of grants awarded in 2012 is $99,300 and was announced in May, 2012.
The principal researcher of the highest ranked proposal also receives the H.A. Krentz Research Award and a gift of $5,000. The recipient will be invited to accept the Award at the SSEF Annual Meeting. This year the AGM will be held on June 15th at the Fairmount Chateau Laurier in Ottawa.
