Available FutureME Grant Program

The ASME FutureME Program Grant is providing early career engineers and recent graduates with a whole new spectrum of career development possibilities and opportunities through innovative and leading edge activities and events.

   

For years the ASME Early Career Forums offered a venue for early career engineers to network, learn and share experiences and knowledge, and ultimately it served as a source of inspiration for the ECE Programming Committee to explore new concepts and ideas to take this experience to a whole new level, and that’s what led us to develop the ASME FutureME Program Grant. It’s meant to challenge event participants and organizers to explore and propose new models and strategies that aim to advance the state of the art of career development techniques.
This program is the result of a joint effort between the ECE Programming Committee and the ASME Old Guard Committee. Thanks to this partnership ASME has been able to offer throughout the years a solid and effective platform that provides the planning expertise and guidance, and the financial support necessary to ASME units for the development and organization of activities and programs dedicated to aid the transition from university to professional life.
 
One of the main goals of the ECE Programming Committee is to pursue the new ASME FutureME Program Grant model to re-innovate and expand its outreach, by offering a more diversified palette of products and opportunities for a larger audience with different interests and styles but with career goals and needs in common. The ASME FutureME Program Grant marks the evolution from a conference like only model to one that allows the activity organizers to work together with the FutureME Program Grant team and propose and develop the programs that best suit the needs and interests of its customer, the possibilities are vast.

Testimonials

“This event opened our eyes and helped us and the participants gain a new perspective about the real engineering world, something that we don’t get to experience very often as in the early stages of our careers, events like these are necessary to create awareness about career development resources and hints for success”. – Organizers of an Early Career event held in Venezuela (the first to be hosted outside the US)

“The ECF preparation was first of all a big challenge for the organizing committee members, getting in contact with the different experts and professionals from different domains that we invited as speakers, and get their support and ideas for the event, was something we had never done before. The event was then a great networking moment for all the participants. At that time different visions are put face to face. Young people had the opportunity to taste what it’s like to be a professional engineer and experienced people from industry and academia could better understand the needs and fears of young engineers.” – Alberto Mazzoleni, organizer of the first European Early Career Forum in Brescia, Italy

How to Apply
