2016 ACI Foundation Scholarships For International Students To Study In USA

ss acf

The ACI Foundation offers scholarships every year for eligible undergraduate and graduate students whose studies relate to concrete. Unlike ACI Foundation 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.

Course(s) Offered: Concrete-related (Engineering, Architecture, etc)
Course Level: Undergraduate, Graduate
Provider: ACI Foundation
Country to Study in: USA, Canada

Both the ACI Foundation Scholarships and the ACI Foundation Fellowships are offered by the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Foundation for ACI Student Members and E-Members. Its basic mission has been and still is to “Provide knowledge and information for the best use of concrete.”

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).

Eligibility
UNDERGRADUATE:
At the time of applying for and receiving the scholarship, the applicant shall be enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program from an institution of higher education that is accredited by the responsible regional or national agency.
The undergraduate study program shall be in the area of concrete with an emphasis on structural design, materials, construction, or any combination thereof.
Applicants must be full-time undergraduates at the time of applying for and receiving the scholarship. Course work during a summer session will count toward the degree year. Applications will be accepted from anywhere in the world but the undergraduate program must be ABET-accredited or a mutually recognized program by ABET.
POSTGRADUATE:
At the time of receiving an ACI Foundation Scholarship (not necessarily at the time of application), the applicant shall possess a bachelor’s degree from an institution of higher education which is accredited by the responsible regional or national agency.
At the time of acceptance of an ACI Foundation Scholarship (not necessarily at the time of application), the applicant shall have been accepted for graduate study at an accredited college or university in an engineering, architecture, or materials science program. The graduate study program shall be in the area of concrete with an emphasis on structural design, materials, construction, or any combination thereof. Applicants for the Kumar Mehta Scholarship must be pursuing graduate research in sustainable concrete.
Applicants must be full-time first- or second-year (after bachelor’s degree) graduate students during the entire scholarship year. Course work during a summer session will count toward the degree year.
