The Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) Educational Trust announces that the first scholarship for the John O’Malley Scholarship Fund will be awarded in 2015.
The John O’Malley Scholarship Fund was established with a generous donation and pledge of $100,000 from Case Foundation Company to fund a scholarship in honor of O’Malley, past president of the company, for his 40 years of exemplary service and leadership to the construction industry. The fund will award scholarships each year to undergraduate civil engineering students who have financial need and an interest in the deep foundations industry.
This year’s award will be $5,000. On-line applications will be accepted starting April 1 at www.dfitrust.org.
Donations to the John O’Malley Scholarship Fund can be made online at www.dfitrust.org. There is still time to receive special recognition as an original Founding Donor of this Fund by making a contribution of $1,000 or more by August 1, 2015.
