The American Galvanizers Associations (AGA) Galvanize the Future: A Richard L. Brooks Memorial Scholarship essay contest was developed to assist future specifiers with the rising cost of a college education. Any full- or part-time, undergraduate or graduate student of any age enrolled at an accredited college or university only in North America may apply. High school students are not eligible to enter this contest. Qualifying majors include architecture, civil engineering, structural engineering, construction management, material science, or other related field.
Two scholarships are awarded annually ($2,500 each) for the top essays submitted. The entry deadline for next year's competition will close March 31st and winners will be announced in May. Essays should be at least 1000 words, but should not exceed 2000 words. Each essay will be read and ranked by reviewers at the AGA. Final awards will be determined by the AGAs Executive Director.
