These grants will help Chapters and Regions send student members to the Winter Conference and Student Program.

 The recipients of the travel grant will be exposed to many activities at the Winter Conference:

  • Student Activities Committee meetings (non-executive session)

Preference will be given to ASHRAE student members who have promoted ASHRAE and demonstrated leadership skills at the university level, student branch level, or chapter level. 

Successful applicants will be notified by the Student Activities committee by November 15th.  The Student Activities Chair will appoint a liaison from the committee to assist the applicant in selecting activities to participate in at the Winter Conference.  The liaison will meet the student upon arrival to review the agenda, prepare a schedule based on the applicant’s interests, and provide orientation.
