 Scholarships Offered by the ACI Foundation International in the United States of America and Canada

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) established The ACI Foundation as a philanthropic foundation with the mission of fostering cooperation, growth, and innovation within the concrete industry by providing financial assistance for research, scholarship opportunities, and new ideas.

Students from other countries who have demonstrated exceptional potential and who wish to pursue their education in the field of structural design, materials, and construction at a university in either Canada or the United States may apply for one of the many undergraduates or postgraduate fellowships that are made available by the ACI on an annual basis.

During their time in school, each potential recipient of financial assistance from the Foundation is limited to receiving just one fellowship and one scholarship.

One application must be submitted online only to be considered for any of the available scholarships or fellowships. After the student responds to a few questions designed to assess their eligibility, the application will determine automatically any fellowships or scholarships for which the student may be eligible.

- Have you ever been awarded funding from the ACI Foundation in the form of a fellowship or scholarship?

- What level of study are you currently pursuing (Bachelor's, Master's, or Doctoral)? (Undergraduate/Bachelors)

- What level of education will you be pursuing when the next award year starts in the fall of 2021: an undergraduate or bachelor's degree, a master's degree, or a doctoral degree?

- After the application period has ended, would you be available to participate in an interview during the spring ACI Concrete Convention on March 28, 2021? (This question is just for Fellowship applicants.) The ACI Foundation is going to cover all of the costs associated with travel, including registration and hotel reservations.

- Whether you want to be considered for particular fellowships, we need to know if you will be able to complete a 10- to a 12-week internship during the summer of 2021.

Eligibility :

- The candidate has to be enrolled in school on a full-time basis for the whole academic year.

- The candidates are required to submit the following materials: their contact and academic information, a CV, a 500-word essay in which they express their interest in a long-term career in the concrete business as well as their interest in the broader area of concrete, an official transcript, and two endorsements, one of which must come from an ACI member. In addition, the applicants are required to attend an interview (non-student)

- All components of the application, including the data, essay, endorsements, résumé, and transcripts, must be written in English.

- The application deadline must be met for all application materials to be considered.

- It is required of applicants that they have an excellent command of the English language; if English is not the applicant's first language, they must provide a copy of their TOEFL score with their application (optional).

- The applicants who have been selected will be informed no later than February 4, 2021, and they will be required to appear for an interview with the scholarship council on Sunday, March 28, 2021, at the spring ACI Concrete Convention.
