Our History

Chalmers Alumni Association U.S. and Canada (CAAI) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which operates exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary and educational purposes.

Established first in May of 2002 as U.S. Friends of Chalmers University of Technology Inc by Chalmers together with a group of alumni, the organization has always supported initiatives to advance education and research at Chalmers University of Technology through financial donations and networking in the United States and Canada.

Our vision to keep the Chalmers spirit alive and thriving among Chalmers graduates in North America!

As the first organization of its kind in the U.S. supporting a Swedish university, CAAI has supported many educational initiatives via the strong connection many of the Chalmers alumni feel for their unique “Chalma Mater”.

Being a nonprofit, CAAI usually solicits grants and contributions from members and generous donors in the U.S. and Canada to fund scholarships for talented American and Canadian students who’d like to study at Chalmers.

Additionally, the organization organizes social, educational and business events via its local chapters to create value for its members and communities it operates in.
