The American Shotcrete Association (ASA) is now accepting applications for Graduate Scholarships for the 2011-2012 academic year. The purpose of the ASA Graduate Scholarship Program is to attract, identify, and assist outstanding graduate students pursuing careers in the field of concrete with a significant interest in the shotcrete process.

One scholarship will be awarded to a graduate student attending an accredited college or university within the United States and a second scholarship will be awarded to a graduate student attending an accredited college or university within Canada.

Based on essays, submitted data, and references, the ASA Scholarship Committee will select scholarship recipients who appear to have the strongest combination of interest and potential for professional success in the shotcrete industry. Each ASA Graduate Scholarship award consists of a stipend of $3,000 (USD) and is paid in one (1) installment of three thousand dollars ($3,000 USD) directly to the student’s educational institution.

Applications and all required documents must be received by 5:00 p.m. EST on November 4, 2011.
