Education Foundation

The Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) is a national membership organization founded in 1948. CSI members include professionals involved in every phase of the design and construction industry.
The Indianapolis Chapter CSI is one of the largest and most successful chapters of the Institute, with a tax-exempt 501(C)3 charitable Education Foundation to further the educational goals of the Chapter. The Indianapolis Chapter has granted academic scholarships since 1991, with annual awards in excess of $6,000.
To be eligible, a student must be currently enrolled and have completed at least one year of a design or construction related degree program. Qualifying degrees include architecture, engineering, interior design, or construction administration. Graduate students are welcome.
The student may be an Indiana resident attending a college or university anywhere in the U.S., or an out-of-state student attending a college or university within the State of Indiana.
