AUBURN – The College of Architecture, Design and Construction at Auburn University has received a $25,000 gift from the Montgomery chapter of Construction Specifications Institute to establish two annual scholarships within CADC. One scholarship will be in architecture and one in building science and will be awarded to students who meet both the financial and academic requirements.
“With this new scholarship endowment, we look forward to our continued partnership with the Montgomery Chapter of CSI,” said Dan Bennett, dean of the College of Architecture, Design and Construction. “Scholarships continue to be important for our students and for our programs.”
Long-time members of the CSI Montgomery Chapter, Alex Alkire, James Bagley and David Godwin, along with the officers, directors and members, were instrumental in raising the funds for this endowed scholarship.
“Auburn University’s College of Architecture, Design and Construction is one of the best in the country and the students graduating from this program are outstanding,” said Mark Johnson, president of the Montgomery chapter of Construction Specifications Institute. “Establishing this endowed scholarship has been a long-term goal of our members, and we look forward to presenting scholarships to students year after year.”
The Montgomery chapter of CSI was founded in 1988 and is part of a national association of architects, engineers, contractors and specifiers with more than 140 local chapters and 13,000 members. The mission of CSI is to advance building information management and education of project teams to improve facility performance. Development of specifications best practices, communication of construction information, promulgating standards/formats, professional education and certification, and clarifying how products and materials interact on the jobsite are cornerstones of CSI.
