James H. Brace Bequest:

In October 1957, the Board of Direction accepted a bequest by James H. Brace, M.ASCE, the proceeds of which are available, in nominal sums, to engineers faced with unemployment, financial hardship, or other special circumstances for payment of their ASCE membership dues.

Brace Fund requests are granted for one year and are based on the number of years of paid membership.  If you receive a Brace Fund dues waiver, all Society membership benefits will continue for that year.
