Fabian ja Jaakko Ahvenainen Foundation Grants 2020 (up to 4,500 Euro)

Fabian ja Jaakko Ahvenainen Foundation Grants 2020 (up to 4,500 Euro)

Deadline: December 19, 2019

Applications for the Fabian ja Jaakko Ahvenainen Foundation Grants 2020 are now open. The Fabian and Jaakko Ahvenainen Foundation awards grants and recognition awards annually to students, young researchers and fresh graduates in the fields of bridge engineering, structural engineering and building physics.

The Fabian ja Jaakko Ahvenainen Foundation equally supports the different areas of bridge and structural engineering in the long-term. Applicants are asked to state in their application whether they have placed a specific emphasis on “bridge engineering” or “structural engineering and building physics” in their studies. The party that donated the initial capital did so with the intention of promoting constructive structural engineering; this too will influence the assessment of applications.


  • The grants range from 1,500 Euro to 4,500 Euro.


  • Eligible grant applicants include Aalto University Department of Civil Engineering Master’s degree students and post-graduate students as well as persons who have recently completed their Master’s or postgraduate degrees and are familiar with and competent in bridge and structural engineering.


A grant applicant must submit a free-form application to the grant committee, which details the applicant’s familiarity with and competence in bridge and structural engineering, the applicant’s academic performance (an attached transcript of records or degree certificate) as well as the applicant’s telephone number, email and home address.

Applications must be submitted to the Department of Civil Engineering via email to [email protected]
