According to the ASHRAE website: “A Grant-in-Aid is a grant of funds to a full-time graduate student of ASHRAE-related technologies. It is awarded once each year for use in the following academic year. The awards are meant for the students’ personal use while pursuing an HVAC&R related education. The goal of the Grant-In-Aid program is to encourage outstanding graduate students to become involved in ASHRAE, its research and establish careers that include active engagement within and continued contributions to Society activities.”
Thanks ASHRAE for considering me as one of the grant recipients!
