General hotel information

Stressing the Stronger Concrete Solution 2014 Convention Scholarship

PTI understands that graduate students, young engineers and their employers may not have the financial resources available to attend PTI Conventions, so in an effort to involve these young minds that may not otherwise be able to attend, PTI will award five young industry professionals and/or graduate students with complimentary convention registrations and $500 to offset travel and hotel expenses. When attending the convention each awardee will be assigned to a "mentor" who will assist in answering questions, making introductions, and ensuring that the awardee gets the most out of their first PTI Convention experience.

Awardees will be announced April 4, 2014.
