Daniel P. Jenny Fellowship Awards Applications are now being accepted.
PCI has announced that several $35,000 awards for the 2016-2017 academic year will be offered under the Daniel P. Jenny Fellowship program.
The fellowships are designed to introduce graduate students to the precast and prestressed concrete industry through participation in meaningful research. The program is intended primarily for the support of candidates for master's degree level research. Ph.D. candidates will also be considered.
There are two new enhancements to the PCI fellowship program this year. If a qualified application is available, one fellowship will be awarded to a student with an untenured advising professor. There will also be a $4,000 Alan Mattock Graduate Scholarship, awarded by the PCI Foundation, added to one of the fellowships to honor the memory of Dr. Alan Mattock. See the announcement at the link below for more details.
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 February 1, 2016.
The PCI Research and Development Council will meet in early March 2016 to decide on the awards.
Results will be available by March 31, 2016.
