NACE International Foundation Academic Scholarships Program

The NACE Foundation’s Scholarship Program was established to promote the study of corrosion science and engineering, as well as to recognize academic excellence and aid deserving students who demonstrate a drive to succeed and become contributing members of the corrosion industry.

 

The application process is open annually from September 1 through January 1 and the NACE Foundation offers several scholarships, funded by contributions from individual members, NACE Sections and Areas, corporations and other non-profit entities, to students who meet the criteria established by the scholarship donors.

 

Each scholarship has its own specific set of eligibility requirements, and is reviewed by a separate Selection Committee. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship through the NACE Foundation, please review the general scholarship guidelines below, in addition to any eligibility requirements for the specific scholarships.

 

Consideration will be afforded to all eligible candidates who apply, provided the candidate submits a completed application with all necessary documentation prior to the deadline.

 

 

Scholarship Program Guidelines

Please be sure to review the guidelines below, along with any additional requirements on the individual scholarship page(s), before submitting an application. These guidelines are applicable to ALL scholarships offered by the NACE Foundation:

 

NACE Foundation scholarship recipients will be recognized at the NACE Annual Conference each year in March. Recipients are highly encouraged to attend the conference in person to be acknowledged.

 

NACE Foundation scholarship recipients are eligible to apply for Travel Assistance to subsidize their travel to the annual conference to receive their award in person.

 

Applicants must be currently enrolled full-time in a college/university. Students enrolled in 2-year or junior colleges are eligible to apply.

 

Applicants may apply for as many scholarships as they are eligible, however, a maximum amount of $10,000 per student (excluding Travel Assistance) will be awarded in any given year.

 

Once a candidate reaches the $10,000 maximum, that candidate’s remaining application(s), if any, will not be considered by subsequent Selection Committees. If the candidate applies for and receives a single scholarship that exceeds the $10,000 maximum amount, that candidate will be excluded from consideration for all subsequent scholarships.

 

All scholarship monies are paid directly to the recipient’s college or university and are to be used for educational expenses only. Expenses include, but not limited to: tuition, fees, books, supplies, and equipment required for courses at the educational institution.

 

Applications are to be completed by the students themselves, using official applications and recommendation forms provided by the NACE Foundation.

 

NACE academic scholarships are not intended to replace stipends or other financial support provided to students for their education by industry, universities, or other organizations.

 

Applicants must submit one complete copy of their application for each scholarship. This includes all information which is to be considered by the Selection Committee (with the exception of Recommendation Forms that are sent directly to the NACE Foundation).

 

Previous applicants and recipients are eligible to reapply each year in open competition with new applicants.

 

Upon acceptance, all scholarship recipients must submit a color photograph of themselves to the NACE Foundation, which will be used for publicity purposes.

 

All scholarship recipients are required to submit a written follow-up report to the NACE Foundation within one year of receipt of their scholarship, describing how funds were utilized and how the scholarship aided their education.

 

Relatives of members of the Selection Committee or NACE Foundation staff are ineligible to apply.

 

One alternate recipient may be selected for each scholarship by the NACE Foundation in the event the chosen recipient becomes ineligible.

 

The NACE Foundation reserves the right to not award any or all scholarships at all in any given year.

 

All applicants must reside and attend a college/university in a country which NACE International and the NACE Foundation may legally support. Any countries sanctioned by the U.S. Office of Foreign AssetsControl (www.treas.gov/offices/enforcement/ofac/) or individuals included on the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) or Blocked Persons lists are excluded.

Who is NACE?

In 1986, the NACE Foundation was created in the form of an Endowment Committee within NACE International. It officially began under the NACE Presidency of Walt Poff, who proposed its creation in order to provide NACE members and industry colleagues the ability to donate towards scholarships for students with interests in corrosion control.

 

Their dream was, eventually, to establish a separate training facility and a museum of corrosion artifacts, videos, and case histories. The first Chairman of the Endowment Committee was Stan Lopata, who also became the first official financial supporter with a $10,000 donation.

 

Shortly thereafter, other NACE Areas, Sections, and members made financial contributions towards the Endowment Committee. Among those who contributed to the growth of the Endowment Committee were Doug Downing, and our beloved supporters: Harry Webster and Darrel Byerley.

 

The Endowment Committee was especially grateful to Mr. Webster and Mr. Byerley for their substantial financial contributions.

 

In 2002, the Endowment Committee was officially transformed into what we know today as the NACE Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization.

 

Their vision was to support education and research projects relating to the science of corrosion, and is one that we continue to pursue.

 

 

The NACE Foundation Today

The NACE Foundation is committed to resolving the corrosion epidemic by investing in scholarships, training, and workforce development.

 

The support we have received from NACE International, the NACE community, and the many individuals and companies who generously support our mission and vision is vital the future of our industry.

 

NACE is excited about the endless opportunities the NACE Foundation will continue to pursue in order to bring corrosion science and corrosion professions to the forefront.
