Architecture, Engineering and Construction Grants

The Thornton Tomasetti Foundation accepts proposals from individuals who represent organizations wishing to fund activities or projects through grants that support the development of the AEC industry. Students seeking to apply for a fellowship or support for education costs should work through the department head and/or dean of their college or university to apply for a Thornton Tomasetti Foundation scholarship. The Foundation does not accept requests from individual students.

The Foundation has a rolling schedule for Architecture, Engineering and Construction grant proposals and considers applications as they are received. We will confirm receipt of your application and at that time give you an approximate time for a decision.
