The ACI Foundation has created a new Fellowship to honor the retirement and legacy of ACI Executive Vice President, Ronald G. Burg. Burg has held the position of ACI Executive Vice President for 13 years and his visionary leadership has initiated substantial positive changes in ACI, one of which was strengthening the ACI Foundation, its impact, and the culture of philanthropy within the ACI community.
Burg became ACI Executive Vice President in 2010 and is the seventh person to hold that position in ACI history. During his time as ACI EVP, Burg has championed the philanthropy of the ACI Foundation to ACI members, by actively supporting student scholarships, research grants, and innovation forums. His passion for supporting students recently resulted in him joining with Past President Jeff Coleman to fund the ACI Foundation Burg-Coleman Iowa State 77 ACI Fellowship.
“Ron has provided a greatly expanded view of the Institute,” states ACI Past President Randall W. Poston. “Ron has taken the Institute to an entirely new level with its Resource Centers, Centers of Excellence, the addition of AOE as a subsidiary, and the ACI Foundation as a visible presence for member philanthropy.”
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, and 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.
To contribute to the Ronald G. Burg Leadership Fellowship and for more information, visit www. acifoundation.org/giving or contact Kari Martin, ACI Foundation Fundraising Manager, at email@example.com or +1.248.848.3757.
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.
