Thank you for your interest in the AEESP Foundation! The mission of the AEESP Foundation is to improve the state of knowledge in environmental engineering and science through the support and encouragement of excellent education, outreach, and scientific research. The focus of the Foundation’s programs is at the university level, and includes awards programs for professors and students as well as sponsorship of an annual Distinguished Lecturer Series. The chosen distinguished lecturer visits 12-18 universities and gives a lecture open to the general public on topics of current interest in environmental engineering and science. In addition, the Foundation supports engagement of university environmental engineering and science faculty and students with K-12 educational programs. We also sponsor and distribute publications about environmental engineering and science at nominal cost. The Foundation is a nonprofit educational organization incorporated in Illinois in 2006 and designated as a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization by the IRS in 2007.
