Behls Endowment Awards

Behls Endowment Fund Announces Awards for Young Engineers

The recently formed Herman and Dorothy Behls Endowment Fund is now fully funded. This was accomplished through the generosity of many people and organizations, especially the Illinois ASHRAE Chapter. To honor Herman’s home chapter, it is the decision of the ASHRAE Technical Committee 5.2, as the endowment sponsor, to limit the first endowment awards to members of the Illinois Chapter. The Behls family plans to participate in the first award of the endowment to two Illinois ASHRAE members.

There are two awards. The Travel Award will pay for travel and lodging expenses for a student (undergraduate or graduate) to the ASHRAE Winter Conference. The Certification Award will reimburse a Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA) member for registration fee upon successful completion of a HVAC Certification exam.

The (extended) application deadline is January 31, 2021. The 2021 ASHRAE Winter Meeting February 9-11 and is completely virtual this year.
