Established in 2010, the Structural Engineers Foundation of Washington has a mission to advance the profession of structural engineering through scholarships, education, research, and outreach.

What does SEFW support?


SCHOLARSHIPS:  SEFW partners with the Structural Engineers Association of Washington (SEAW) in providing scholarships to Washington-resident students in their structural engineering studies, with more than 50 scholarships granted since 1985.


EDUCATION:  SEFW offers educational opportunities to inform professionals and students, as well as the general public about structural engineering. Our educational events and initiatives include our Fall Forum lecture series, creation of educational documents about careers in engineering, and support for related productions such as the documentary "Structural Engineers of the 1962 Seattle's World Fair."


RESEARCH: SEFW provides grants for research initiatives sponsored by the SEAW Disaster Preparedness Response program. Planned future SEFW initiatives include providing grants to selected graduate student research projects at Washington universities.


OUTREACH: SEFW has forged STEM relationships with schools and organizations that bring structural engineering into the community. This has included funding field trips for students, popsicle-stick bridge-building competitions, mentoring opportunities, and more.
