About the foundation

The Fabian Ahvenainen Foundation was inaugurated in the Helsinki University of Technology in 1998 with a donation given by Jaakko Ahvenainen in memory of his father, Fabian Ahvenainen. Jaakko Ahvenainen later added to his donation twice and also included the foundation in his will. The aim of the foundation is to award grants to students of bridge engineering and structural engineering and building physics, especially to promote constructive civil engineering. In its twenty-one years of operation, the foundation has awarded a total of 150 840 euros in grants.
