Daniel P. Jenny Fellowship Awards Applications are now being accepted.
PCI is planning for several $35,000 awards for the 2014-2015 academic year will be offered under the Daniel P. Jenny Fellowship program.
Applications should clearly describe the relevance of the proposed research to precast/prestressed concrete, potential contribution to the state of the art, timeliness of the proposed research and possible impact on the industry market. Support from a PCI Producer Member (or members) is an essential part of the program and ensures that the research results or implementation plan has possible benefits to PCI and its members. Fellowships generally conclude with a master's degree thesis and a summary paper published in the PCI Journal.
Proposals are due at PCI headquarters no later than March 10, 2014.
The PCI Research and Development Council
will meet in late March 2014 to decide on the awards.
Results will be available by May 30, 2014.
