MACN Annual Scholarship Opportunities - $500+ Engineering & $2,000 Ben Fry Memorial

Concrete Masonry Association of California and Nevada, a non-profit organization, is pleased to announce we have continued to establish scholarships in 2022 for graduate and undergraduate level engineering students who study concrete masonry as a subject. Please find the below information regarding CMACN’s Scholarship opportunities. Individual scholarship letters and applications have been attached for distribution.

As an association of concrete masonry block manufacturers, CMACN’s mission is to strengthen the masonry industry in California and Nevada by providing technical information resources on concrete masonry for design professionals, protect and advance the interests of the 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. Recipients of the Engineering Scholarship will receive a minimum of $500 to be paid the student, and recipients of the Ben Fry Memorial Scholarship will receive $2,000 towards tuition to be paid directly to the university on behalf of the recipient. 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.

Requests for these scholarships should be submitted via email, USPS mail, or fax on the attached applications and include at least one signed, dated, and sealed departmental recommendation. Ben Fry Memorial applicants MUST ALSO include a signed, dated, and sealed recommendation from the cooperative work experience supervisor from one of CMACN’s Producer Member companies (see the list of Producer Members and their locations at Additionally, scholarship recipients must be returning to their universities in fall 2022 as engineering students. All applications must be postmarked no later than Monday, May 23, 2022. Repeat applicants and previous awardees are welcome to apply. All scholarship applicants will be notified of award status in August 2022. Letter providing university faculty members will be notified only if recommended student is selected for a scholarship.
