What is the Structural Engineers Foundation of Washington (SEFW)?

SEFW’s mission statement is to “enhance public safety and advance the profession of Structural Engineering through Scholarship, Research, Education, and Outreach.” 

A 501(c)(3) charitable organization, SEFW serves in many capacities to fulfill this goal, such as hosting public forums on topics related to the built environment, awarding scholarships on behalf of the Structural Engineers Association of Washington, producing and promoting educational materials that support Structural Engineering, and much more!

For more information about SEFW visit their website. 


Have you seen our short videos? SEFW's fundraising campaign, "Dig Deep for the Foundation," is well underway, and we have been excited to show you what people around town are saying about SEFW. We interviewed a past SEAW scholarship winner, Wendy, who now works for a local firm as a structural engineer. We interviewed a local high school student, Hana, who got to participate in a wooden truss bridge building competition funded by SEFW. We also interviewed Roger Heeringa, President of DCI Engineers, who shared why he and DCI support SEFW's mission. We have one more video in the works.
