Fabian Ahvenainen Foundation invitation

The grant committee for the Aalto University School of Engineering's Fabian Ahvenainen Foundation has announced that grants for bridge and structural engineering in recognition of completed “bridge engineering” or “structural engineering and building physics” studies are now up for applicationThe grants range from 1 500 euro to 4 500 euro. The final number of grants and their sizes will be influenced by the number and standard of the applicants. Eligible grant applicants include Aalto University Department of Civil Engineering Master's degree students and post-graduate students as well as persons who have recently completed their Master's or postgraduate degrees and are familiar with and competent in bridge and structural engineering.  

The grants will be awarded at a ceremony, which is due to be held on Thursday, 7 March 2019. 

A grant applicant must submit a free-form application to the grant committee, which details the applicant's familiarity with and competence in bridge and structural engineering, the applicant's academic performance (an attached transcript of records or degree certificate) as well as the applicant's telephone number, email and home address. 

The Fabian Ahvenainen Foundation equally supports the different areas of bridge and structural engineering in the long-term. Applicants are asked to state in their application whether they have placed a specific emphasis on “bridge engineering” or “structural engineering and building physics” in their studies. The party that donated the initial capital did so with the intention of promoting constructive structural engineering; this too will influence the assessment of applications. 

Applications must be submitted to the Department of Civil Engineering via email to [email protected] by Wednesday, 12 December 2018. 

If you have any questions regarding the grants please contact Department Secretary Elsa Nissinen-Narbro, tel. +358 503502638, Mr. Lauri Salokangas, tel +358 408322717, or Prof. Jari Puttonen, tel. +358 503841782.

The Fabian and Jaakko Ahvenainen Foundation awards grants and recognition awards annually to Master's degree students and post-graduate students of the Aalto University School of Engineering as well as persons who recently completed their Master's or postgraduate degrees and familiarized with bridge engineering or structural engineering and building physics in their studies at Aalto University.
