The ACI Foundation has created a new Fellowship in honor of Kenneth C. Hover. His past and present teaching, communication, research, and consulting activities have positively influenced several thousands of individuals in the concrete industry community and enhanced our knowledge about concrete.
The ACI Foundation recently received $50,000 in seed money from generous donors in honor of Hover’s life-long contributions to the concrete industry. The ACI Foundation is looking to raise additional funds towards the new fellowship to extend the award indefinitely to deserving students.
Hover is a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA, where his teaching and research focus on concrete materials, design, and construction. He also acts as a consultant to many industry organizations, helping with the technical aspects of concrete construction projects. He is among the highest-rated speakers at World of Concrete, and his seminars often sell out. At World of Concrete in 2006, he was named “one of the 10 most influential people in the U.S. concrete industry.”
Hover has a unique ability to communicate complex technical concepts in a clear and captivating manner. ACI Past President Tony Fiorato said, “He is without question one of the preeminent educators in the civil engineering community and the concrete construction industry.”
The new fellowship, once fully funded, will be available for student applicants who are graduate or undergraduate students studying in any concrete-related field. The award funding will be distributed in increments of $15,000 to benefit one student annually. A $10,000 educational stipend will go to the student to cover tuition, books, supplies, and $5000 to cover expenses to attend three ACI Concrete Conventions, one of which will include an in-person interview with the Scholarship Council.

The ACI Foundation was established in 1989 to promote progress, innovation, and collaboration and is a wholly owned and operated non-profit subsidiary of the American Concrete Institute. Three councils make up the ACI Foundation; the Concrete Innovation Council, which identifies technologies and innovations and helps to implement when appropriate; the Concrete Research Council, which funds and assists in the research of new concrete technologies; and the Scholarship Council which facilitates student fellowships and scholarships.
