ACI Memorial Scholarship Fund
The ACI Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2004 as a tribute to the leaders in the building science and home performance industry who have championed the "whole house" approach. ACI awards a limited number of scholarships for each of its regional and national events.
Each scholarship provides an opportunity to further the advancement of the building/home performance industry. Scholarship recipients from all sectors, with various barriers and in any stage of their career, are awarded funding to assist in their participation at ACI educational events. Donors may designate contributions to support specific types of recipients—for example, women, students, or attendees from a specific sector within the industry—to encourage diverse participation.

Here's what past scholarship recipients had to say about their experiences:
"I wanted to thank the ACI organization again so much for letting me attend ACI's 2012 Annual Leadership Summit and National Home Performance Conference in Baltimore in March. There were so many choices, so many experts, so many excellent presentations, so much useful information that my only problem was deciding which to attend." —Susanne A. Sotirchos, Field Environmental Officer at the HUD Baltimore Field Office
"I wanted to take this opportunity to thank your organization for sponsoring my scholarship. As a woman-owned company, I was able to gain so much insight into the business." —Sue Willison, Principal at Absolute Energy Solutions
