ACI Foundation Scholarships

Scholarship Description
Every year, the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Foundation offers scholarships for eligible undergraduate and graduate students whose studies relate to concrete.

Unlike ACI Fellowships, those applying for ACI scholarships do not need to be nominated by ACI-Member Faculty. Applications will be accepted from anywhere in the world but study must take place in the United States or Canada during the award year.

In an effort to provide students worldwide with the connections, resources, and opportunities to be successful in their studies and - ultimately - in their careers, ACI has made membership free and easily accessible... electronically (Student E-Membership).

ACI Foundation Scholarships and Fellowships can be awarded to anyone in the world; however, you must attend a U.S. or Canadian university during the award year.

Some of the Fellowships expect the awardee to complete a 10- to 12-week internship the summer prior to beginning the award year.

All applicants must be proficient in the English language. If English is not your native language, a written statement must be attached to this application attesting this proficiency.

To be eligible for an ACI Foundation Graduate Scholarship, you must be in your first or second year of graduate study during the award year.

To be eligible for the Undergraduate scholarship, the applicant must be a full-time undergraduate at the time of applying for and receiving the scholarship. Course work during a summer session will count toward the degree year.
