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.
Good luck to all of our applicants!
Available scholarships for 2015 will be posted September 1, 2014.
