Three students in the Department of Civil Engineering were recently awarded scholarships from the Alabama Concrete Industries Association.

Only three scholarships are awarded by the association each year.

The Alabama Concrete Industries Association was founded in 1963 to provide a unified voice for companies in the concrete industry. ACIA’s member companies produce cement, ready mix concrete, concrete blocks, prestress and precast concrete, septic tanks, pipes, poles, admixtures and other products allied to the concrete industry.
