American Concrete Institute Foundations fellowship, scholarship program open
The ACI Foundation, a wholly-owned and non-profit subsidiary of the American Concrete Institute (ACI), announces the opening of its student Fellowship and Scholarship program for the 2011-2012 academic year.
This year, the ACI Foundation is offering eight Fellowships for undergraduate and graduate students and six Scholarships for graduate students studying concrete, through funds from both private and corporate donors. Applicants must study at a U.S. or Canadian university during the award year. The application process is open through Nov. 5, 2010.
ACI Foundation Fellowships range from $7,000 to $10,000, and are awarded to high-potential undergraduate and graduate students who are studying engineering, construction management, or other related fields of study in the area of concrete.
Fellowship applicants must be nominated by a faculty member who is also an ACI member to be considered for these awards. Those students receiving Fellowships also receive paid travel and registration to two ACI Conventions, assignment to an industry mentor, and a summer internship, in some cases.
Available Fellowships include the ACI Presidents’ Fellowship, ACI Baker Student Fellowship (two awards), ACI Elmer Baker Student Fellowship, ACI Richard N. White Student Fellowship, ACI BASF Construction Chemicals Student Fellowship, ACI Cagley ACI Student Fellowship, and ACI Charles Pankow Foundation ACI Student Fellowship.
ACI Foundation Scholarships, in the amount of $3,000, are awarded to graduate students studying concrete-related subjects. Available Scholarships include the ACI W.R. Grace Scholarship, ACI Scholarship, Kumar Mehta Scholarship, ACI Bertold E. Weinberg Scholarship, Katharine and Bryant Mather Scholarship, and the Schwing America Scholarship.
More information, including application requirements, instructions, tips for student applicants, and information for educators can be found at www.scholarships.concrete.org.
