2021 UEF Annual Report

In 2021 the United Engineering Foundation (UEF) like all organizations benefited from a very robust market with substantial economic growth. All meetings and activities for the UEF, the Founder Societies and our Grantees continued to be virtual. As a result, several grants could not be completed or they were unable to use the full funding since face-to-face activities could not be conducted.

The UEF continues the tradition as a significant leader in the engineering community. These efforts are consistent with the UEF vision – To advance the engineering arts and sciences for the welfare of humanity.

The UEF Difference

Thank you for your grant to support the “The Next MacGyver” project, which allowed world-wide crowd-sourcing of ideas for a TV show featuring an female engineer lead character and engaging top Hollywood talent to provide a real shot at making that long-desired goal happen. It is inspiring and refreshing to know there are organizations like yours willing to take on “outside-the-box” ideas that could have outsized impact."
