SEFW supports Washington-resident students in their structural engineering studies. Funds have gone toward the SEAW Scholarship Program, SEAW DEI Scholarships, ACE Mentor Program, and continuing education stipends.

The SEAW Scholarship Application is now OPEN! SEAW is accepting applications for its 2024 Scholarship Program. Download materials from the SEAW website.

To be eligible, a student must be:  

  1. United States citizen and an official resident of the State of Washington. Residents of this state attending schools in other states are eligible. Students attending in-state schools on anon-resident basis are not eligible.

The SEAW Scholarship Program opens for application toward the beginning of the calendar year. Current awards equal $5,000, but are determined officially by the SEAW Scholarship Committee. SEFW is committed to furthering the profession of structural engineering, and is eager to assist students in their structural engineering educational goals.

Current Scholarship Awards

Six Washington students were recognized with 2023 scholarship awards at the SEAW Spring Social in June. Congratulations to these students, who received both SEAW scholarships and the inaugural SEAW DEI scholarships.


SEAW Recipient

Alan Champagne

Alan Champagne, EIT, received a $5,000 SEAW Scholarship. Alan will graduate in December 2023 from Gonzaga University with a BSCE, after transferring from Spokane Falls Community College. At Gonzaga, Alan is involved with the student chapter of ASCE (including the concrete canoe team and the environmental competition team) and Gonzaga Without Borders, and also serves as an undergraduate research assistant. Alan previously received an associate’s degree in aviation operations from the Community College of the Air Force and held several positions with the United States Air Force until 2015. He then became a Washington State Journeyman Carpenter and worked with Hanson Carlen Architecture & Construction in Spokane before returning to school to study structural engineering. This summer, he has an internship with BC Engineers in Hayden, Idaho. For fun, Alan enjoys rock climbing, diving, and building furniture. He was born and raised in Williamson, New York, and graduated from Williamson Senior High School.
