Scholarship Alliance

The ACIL Scholarship Alliance, a division of the Independent Laboratories Institute (ILI), helps to ensure future generations of skilled employees for the laboratory testing community. Finding and keeping qualified technical personnel is a constant challenge for our industry. To encourage future generations of skilled employees, the ACIL Scholarship Alliance annually offers academic scholarships up to $4,000. The children and grandchildren of employees of ACIL member companies who are planning scientific or engineering careers are especially encouraged to apply.

Candidates must be students attending their junior year or higher in a four-year, bachelor-degree granting institution or graduate program in the U.S. Candidates must also major in any of the physical sciences practiced by ACIL members: physics, chemistry, engineering, geology, biology, or environmental science. Scholarship awards are based on the applicant's academic achievement, career goals, leadership, and financial need. Click here for the current Scholarship Application.
