Public Sector Utility Scholarship

In 2017, the American Society of Civil Engineers' (ASCE) Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute (UESI) established the Public-Sector Utility Scholarship Award program to provide educational grants to public sector employees, specifically public-sector utility professionals, enabling them to attend ASCE-UESI conferences. This scholarship is intended to provide education training for employees of North American public-sector agencies and for utility owners with limited training and continuing education funding. Scholarship applicants who are members of ASCE-UESI are preferred but the scholarship program is open to all qualified public-sector professionals.

The scholarship winners will be awarded a full Conference registration to the 2020 UESI Pipelines Conference in San Antonio, Texas, August 9–12, 2020. The registration includes full access to all sessions, exhibits and technical papers for 3 days at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter. Travel, lodging and per diem expenses are not covered by the scholarship. All complete scholarship applications received before the application deadline will be reviewed by a committee of UESI volunteers comprised of current UESI members from both public and private sectors, appointed by the UESI Board of Governors, and awarded based upon the supplied responses. Read the full UESI Public Sector Scholarship Policy and Procedures Document (.PDF).

Government/municipal employees who do not receive a Public-Sector Scholarship are still eligible for our regular Government/Municipal discount. To register with the discount, please call 1-800-548-2723 or submit paper registration form to [email protected] or via fax to 1-866-902-5593.
