Providing educational scholarships
to advance the profession of engineering
Under the auspices of ACEC’s College of Fellows, the ACEC Research Institute will award general scholarships, specialty scholarships as well as diversity & inclusion scholarships in the fall of 2023.
All scholarship applications will be forwarded to the appropriate ACEC State Membership Organization for consideration in their local program as well as the national program.
Click here for Member Organization contact information.
Check with state Member Organization for application deadline.
In addition to a completed application, a recommendation is needed from a consulting engineer, land surveyor or engineering professor. Use the official form—a letter is not sufficient. The evaluator must use the official recommendation form found here.
