In 2010, AACE International awarded $81,750 in scholarships,
to students enrolled in university programs related to the cost and schedule
management field. Two programs, a scholarship competition and a matching
funds program, are open each year to students enrolled in colleges and
universities in the US and Canada. Nationality is not limited to US and
Canadian citizens, however.
Top awards of $8000 each were awarded to Mr. Evan Bingham, a graduate
student in the Del E Webb School of Construction at Arizona
University, and Ms. Fereshteh Khoramshahi, a graduate student at the
Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary.
In addition, awards ranging from $6000 to $2000 were awarded to students
from ten other institutions who were successful in the annual scholarship
competition. Other awards in varying amounts were made through the matching
Matching funds awards are given to students by local AACE sections by
combining their donations with funds provided for that purpose by AACE
International members and sponsoring corporations.
All of the funding for these scholarship programs comes from
donations from AACE members, corporate sponsors, and local sections.
