How the program has supported you

PAF Funding is essential for our team to compete annually in the Student Leadership Conference held by the EERI. Our primary claims of PAF funding are for conference registration and travel for our competing team. This year, as the competition was in Vancouver, we allocated our competition budget towards sending a total of 24 students to the competition, either as competitors or supporters, to further inspire and motivate as many students as possible to pursue further learning in seismic engineering.

Outcomes

In the international EERI SLC competition our team came in 3rd for our design proposal, 3rd for our architectural design, and 10th in analysis prediction. The team is now three times larger with a significant connection to the local EERI chapter with whom we have sought mentorship. Several team members are returning members having voiced very positive experiences from their past year and we look forward to competing with our best team ever in San Diego, in March 2020!
