W. Gene Corley Scholarship



Candidates completing, or that have completed, studies for the bachelor’s degree from an accredited program may apply for this award. To receive consideration for any of these graduate scholarships, the applicant will need to submit only one application. Based on essays, submitted data, and recommendations, the Scholarship Council of the ACl Foundation, a subsidiary of ACI, selects a scholarship recipient who appears to have the strongest combination of interest and potential for professional success in the concrete industry.


Each graduate scholarship, except for the Stewart C. Watson Memorial Scholarship Award, consists of a cash stipend of $3,000 (U.S.) for a one-year period. The Stewart C. Watson Memorial Scholarship Award consists of a cash stipend of $5000 (U.S.) for a one-year period (paid in 2 installments of $2500 each). The stipend will be sent to the financial aid office at the institution designated by the applicant where the graduate study program will be pursued. These funds will then be deposited into the recipient’s university account.
