Ways to support the Concrete Technology Program at ACC
Establish a Scholarship
As financial assistance to a student is always needed, corporate or individually sponsored scholarships are always welcome. Your decision to establish a scholarship for a Concrete Technology student shows your support to the future of the concrete industry and is tax-deductible. These scholarships can be of various monetary value from $250.00 on up. Scholarships can have restrictions such as being limited to certain schools in your area. To establish a scholarship or to obtain additional information contact the Alpena Community College Foundation at 989.358.7293.
Does your company manufacture equipment that could be useful in a student's education? Are you upgrading your lab and looking for a place to donate that used equipment? Give us a call! Donation of new and used equipment to our program allows us to offer concrete technology students an education second to none.
Offer Needed Supplies
To offer students the latest technology in the classroom and laboratory, corporate donations of supplies from cementitious materials to lightweight aggregate to admixtures are important to the success of our program. If you would like to donate supplies to the Concrete Technology program contact us at 989.358.7460 or 989.358.7364. Your donations are tax-deductible and help students learn by using the best materials, as well as put your company name in front of future concrete industry decision-makers.
For any program to offer the highest possible education it is very important to keep that program on the cutting edge of technology. Could you be a guest lecturer? What about the donation of classroom videos? Your expertise is very valuable so why not share it with others by becoming a guest lecturer? Maybe you have an idea as to how best to demonstrate a product in a laboratory exercise or how to use a product in the field. Call 989.358.7460 or 989.358.7364 to volunteer your services.

Student Research Projects
Do you have an idea or product that you would like evaluated? How about comparing products as to their performance? Maybe an idea that needs refining? As our students are required to complete a year-long project, we are always looking for "real life" projects suggested by industry. In past years we have completed numerous projects for many major concrete industries. These projects are completed at little or no cost to those that request their completion. If you have an idea for these "blue-collar" research projects contact the Concrete Technology Department at Alpena Community College call 989.358.7460 or 989.358.7364..
