University Grant Program
IAFSM does not yet have a formal grant program, but is always looking for ways to contribute positively to the research toward better stormwater
and floodplain management. If you are interested in learning more about how IAFSM may be able to assist your school with stormwater-related research, please contact our Youth Outreach Committee Chair.
In 2009, the Youth Outreach Committee searched for in-state universities conducting school research toward progressing the science of stormwater management. The 3 chosen universities each are receiving a grant in return for a report of their findings. IAFSM also sponsored the research students' attendance and exhibit booth at the 2010 annual conference, to give the students exposure to the association and stormwater industry, while also affording IAFSM members the advantage of discussing new research that is underway. The 2009-2010 grant recipients are:
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, in the amount of $6,130
Northwestern University, in the amount of $3,000
- Illinois Institute of Technology, in the amount of $5,000
