This award is awarded to undergraduates entering their junior or senior year with an interest in a career in the construction industry. Awardees serve a ten to twelve week internship with Baker Concrete Construction.
Fellowships are offered to high-potential undergraduate and graduate students whose studies relate to concrete and are identified by ACI-Member Faculty. The Student Fellowship can have a nominal term of up to two academic years, renewed annually, and may extend through graduate study. Annual renewal will be subject to renomination and reapplication. These awards are granted based on the availability of contributions received.
Students: In order to receive an application and be considered for an ACI Foundation Fellowship, you must be nominated by a faculty member who is also an ACI member. After a student is formally nominated, the ACI Foundation will email an official application directly to the nominated student. To search for ACI-Member faculty in your area, please visit the ACI Faculty Network page. (ACI staff will not find nominations for applications and will not accept self-nominations.)
Faculty: Nomination by a faculty member is required before a student can apply for an ACI foundation Fellowship. Faculty nominators must themselves be a member of ACI. For more information on becoming a member, please visit the Membership area of ACI's website. Once nominated, the ACI Foundation will send application materials directly to the student, usually within 48 hours of ACI's receipt of the nomination.
Faculty members should recognize that the nomination process involves more than just submitting a student's contact information to ACI. Rather, it is expected that faculty nominators serve as mentors to their students throughout the application process. In particular, faculty members are encouraged to work with their student to identify potential references, ensure that references understand the significance of their contribution, and review the application package prior to submission. As part of the online nomination process, faculty members will be asked to confirm their willingness to serve as a mentor to the student applicant.
