Teetor Awards Faculty Scholarship Program to Access SAE Professional Development Programs

The Ralph R. Teetor fund was established to promote information sharing and interaction between academia and industry. Over the years, a variety of programming has been established that supports this mission including:
  • Annual Teetor Awards program, which provides funding for faculty to attend SAE World Congress or a Congress of their choice and to attend an industry tour organized by a host company
  • Annual Faculty Advisors Award, which recognizes outstanding faculty, which includes funding to attend an SAE conference of choice
  • Industrial Lecture Series, a speaker’s bureau of engineering experts that Universities can request. Teetor funds the speaker’s travel and speaking honorarium.
