The Research Promotion Committee manages and supports both the Society-level fundraising and Chapter-level fundraising of the RP Campaign. Traditionally supporting just research, the RP Campaign was expanded 10 years ago to include support of Education & ALI, Endowed Research through ASHRAE Foundation, YEA programs, ASHRAE Scholarships, and the General/Unrestricted fund. Research, the backbone of ASHRAE, remains the primary fund of the program with over $2 million raised for this program annually.
Why is Research Promotion so important?
The RP Campaign benefits the funding of numerous ASHRAE programs including:
•ASHRAE Scholarships for undergrads
•ASHRAE Learning Institute development of new courses
•Graduate Research Projects
•Young Engineers in ASHRAE Leadership Training
