Foundations

Foundation for the Advancement of Municipal Engineering (FAME)

The Foundation is a non-profit entity, which provides and administers funds for the purpose of furthering public works engineering.

The funds may be used, to enable any:

  • IPWEA member to undertake study and research in Australia and overseas which will benefit. The outcomes of any funded research or study may be made available to all members.

  • to enable invited guests from around Australia to present at conferences and workshops on specialised topics.

  • to fund awards annually to civil engineering students who excel in nominated subjects of their university undergraduate course.

It is managed by a Board of Governors elected by IPWEA members, and financial members of IPWEA are automatically members of FAME.
