ACI Foundation Announces New Fellowship
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Nov. 5, 2014—The ACI Foundation has announced the establishment of a new fellowship – the Barbara S. and W. Calvin McCall Carolinas Fellowship.
The new fellowship was created by the ACI Carolinas Chapter with the aim of improving the chapter and increasing the number of student chapters in the Carolinas. Honoring Barbara S. and W. Calvin McCall, the chapter named the fellowship for the tremendous dedication the McCalls have for the concrete community and the Carolinas Chapter of ACI.
This $7,000 fellowship will be awarded to students who are either Undergraduate, Masters, or PhD students in construction, design, education, or materials programs during the year of the award. The student should be an active member of an ACI Student Chapter affiliated with the Carolinas Chapter; a student in good standing with a University in North Carolina or South Carolina; or an active member of an ACI Student Chapter in the United States.
This new fellowship in will be awarded to a deserving student beginning in 2015, and brings the total number of fellowships available in 2015 to eleven. Application deadline has been extended to November 30, 2014.
The ACI Foundation offers fellowship and scholarship opportunities to students whose studies relate to the concrete industry. ACI Foundation Fellowship awards are granted 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 three ACI Conventions, and assignment to an industry mentor.
