During each academic cycle (year), each student will receive the following: a $10,000 to $15,000 stipend for tuition, residence, books, and materials; appropriate certificates, recognition, and publicity; paid travel expenses and attendance fees to two more ACI conventions; assignment to an industry mentor; and a summer internship, if desired. After the initial award year, the fellowship will continue for an additional year provided ACI receives another nomination and another application.
The number of awards offered varies annually. Eight awards will be offered this year. One of each of the following: ACI Graduate Fellowship for Concrete Research, ACI/Baker Student Fellowship (two awards), ACI/Elmer Baker Student Fellowship, ACI/Richard N. White Student Fellowship, ACI/BASF Constructino Chemicals Student Fellowship, Cagley Foundation ACI Student Fellowship, Charles Pankow Foundation ACI Student Fellowship.
The purpose of the Student Fellowship Program is to identify, attract, and develop outstanding professionals for productive careers in the concrete field. Applications will be accepted from anywhere in the world, but graduate study must take place in the United States or Canada during the award year. Finalists chosen for consideration of these awards must agree to attend the ACI Spring Convention. Travel expenses will be paid by the ACI Foundation. The fellowship recipients will be chosen during the convention and notified shortly thereafter.
