This year we have 21 fellowships and 11 scholarships available to undergraduate and graduate students that are in full time concrete related degree programs.
The Scholarship Council formed a subcommittee earlier this year led by Anahid Behrouzi, a former fellowship awardee who is an Associate Professor of Architectural Engineering at California Polytechnic State University. The mission of the subcommittee is to promote awards, increase student applications and engage and develop students.
The deadline for students to complete their online applications is November 2, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. EST.

We are happy to assist should you have any questions or concerns.
Schwartz Reisman Institute’s inaugural conference, Absolutely Interdisciplinary, will take place virtually from November 5-6th, 2021, preceded by a one-day graduate workshop on November 4th. Absolutely Interdisciplinary aims to connect the frontier of research in artificial intelligence with top researchers in normativity to explore common questions for deeper integration of our fields.
About Absolutely Interdisciplinary
Understanding the capacities and limitations of complex new technologies like AI calls for more than just a technical perspective. Absolutely Interdisciplinary will convene researchers from across disciplines to build new, interdisciplinary approaches to advance our understanding of how to meet the challenge of ensuring AI and other powerful technologies promote human well-being. This year, Absolutely Interdisciplinary takes place virtually, with a one-day graduate workshop on November 4th, followed by four scheduled sessions across two days on November 5th and 6th. Visit the conference website for more information and register here.
About this year’s theme
Humans are a fundamentally normative species, with complex cognitive and social systems for shaping behaviour to implement collectively-determined values and norms in support of cooperation. Building AI systems that are robustly aligned with human values requires deep understandings of how these normative systems work. At the same time, advances in AI present unique opportunities to investigate and test what capacities contribute to our ability to build, maintain, and abide by norms. This year, Absolutely Interdisciplinary takes up the challenge of exploring these dynamics under the theme Human and Machine Normativity: New Connections. Learn more here.
