Annual Scholarships for the Study of Concrete Masonry
Concrete Masonry Association of California and Nevada (CMACN), a non-profit organization, is pleased to announce that we continue to establish scholarships for undergraduate and graduate level architectural students who study concrete masonry as an architectural building envelope material.
As an association of concrete masonry block manufacturers, CMACN’s mission is to strengthen the masonry industry in California and Nevada by providing a technical information resource on concrete masonry for design professionals, protect and advance the interests of concrete masonry industry, develop new and existing markets for concrete masonry products, and coordinate our members’ efforts in solving common problems within the masonry industry.
CMACN develops, monitors, and coordinates test programs, research projects and specification updates. We publish technical and educational data, and both receive and disseminate recommendations for improved product use. To this end, we have established a scholarship program in order to promote the study of concrete masonry as a subject.

The Engineering and Architectural Scholarship amount is minimum of $500 per winning student. In addition, awarded students will receive a copy of our latest edition of “Design of Reinforced Masonry Structures”, which is the association’s premier publication. There is no predetermined number of scholarship awardees; selections are determined by responses to the application questions.
