Travel Stipend Application»

The Professors’ Workshop Travel Stipend Program provides a limited number of travel stipends up to $600 USD, to cover travel expenses associated with attending the Professors’ Workshop at ACI World Headquarters in Farmington Hills, MI. Applications received before July 1, 2023 will be given top priority.


The 2023 Professors’ Workshop will be held in two parts; the first will be an online only event on July 17 and 18 and the second will be a face-to-face event held at ACI Headquarters in Farmington Hills, MI on July 25 and 26.

Prominent, nationally known faculty and industry representatives will present information and resources to assist professors in preparing or fine-tuning their concrete-related courses. The synchronous online portion of the workshop will focus on providing teaching resources that are suited for both online and face-to-face formats. Although the online portion will focus on providing resources, interactive online sessions are also planned to facilitate discussion and exchange ideas.

The sessions at ACI HQ will be highly interactive. Attendees will participate in numerous breakout sessions where they will participate in classroom activities that are designed to engage the students attention and interest in concrete. In addition, attendees will be asked to develop and present ideas for integrating the techniques presented into their own courses. Breakout sessions will be guided by the professors’ workshop faculty with plenty of opportunity for exchanging teaching ideas with the workshop faculty and fellow attendees. Attendees will receive a certificate of participation for attending the workshop
