Additional Information

The Freeman Fund was established in 1924 by John R. Freeman, Past President and Honorary Member, ASCE. The income from the fund is to be used in the aid and encouragement of young engineers, especially in research work for objectives as indicated in the rules. Students may apply for all ASCE fellowships for which they are eligible. Grants are made toward expenses for experiments, observations, and compilations to discover new and accurate data that will be useful in hydraulic engineering. The fellowship also recognizes underwriting fully or in part, some of the loss that may be sustained in the publication of meritorious books, papers, or translations pertaining to hydraulic science and art that might, except for some such assistance, remain mostly inaccessible. Travel is for the purpose of aiding the recipient to visit engineering works in the United States, or in any other part of the world, where there is good prospect of obtaining information useful to hydraulic engineers. The grant may be in the form of a prize for the most useful paper relating to the science or art of hydraulic construction. The grant may be for assisting in the translation, or publication in English, of papers or books in foreign languages pertaining to hydraulics. All applications will be reviewed by the Society Awards Committee or its designee for recommendation to the Executive Committee for final approval. The committee reserves the right to recommend that no award be made in a particular year if no meritorious applications are received. Selection is based on the quality of the application. Recipient(s) will be notified of selection in May by the Executive Director of the Society.
