The CRSI Education & Research Foundation (formerly CRSI Education Foundation, Inc.) began in 1981 by a group of determined individuals dedicated to expanding the reinforced concrete construction industry’s educational activities. The idea to provide for the industry’s future success by assisting with the continued availability of talented people and new technology grew as the years passed.
The CRSI Education & Research Foundation exists to advance the reinforced concrete built environment by making grants that support academic scholarships and focused research and development projects.
The CRSI Education & Research Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization that enjoys tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Tax Code. It was formed to foster the education and research mission of the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute.
The CRSI Education & Research Foundation provides guidance and support in the development of educational programs and materials both within and outside the Institute. This is facilitated through educational programs for students majoring in civil engineering, architecture, and other related disciplines at colleges, universities, and technical training schools. As appropriate, the Foundation will also assist in apprenticeship training programs. In addition, the Foundation makes college students aware of opportunities in the reinforced concrete industry. The Foundation also helps support research that will ultimately improve and advance the reinforced concrete construction industry.
