Twenty-five students from 19 states have won college scholarships worth between $10,000 and $40,000 in a new national competition organized by the ACE Mentor Program, a free afterschool program created by the integrated construction industry to attract students into pursuing industry-related careers.     
The CMiC-Allen Berg Memorial scholarships are named in honor of the late founder of the construction management software company, CMiC.   With the support of Mr. Berg’s family, this program will award $400,000 in new scholarships annually for the next six years.   
“The scholarships are a real career-booster for some of the most talented and promising of our thousands of students,” said ACE’s president Diana Eidenshink.  “Many of them come from families with limited means. Some scholarship winners are the first in their family to attend college. We expect them to be industry standouts during their careers.” 
Selected on the basis of merit and financial need, scholarship winners this fall will enter accredited college programs in architecture, interior design and several engineering fields, including civil, mechanical, electrical, and architectural.  Half of scholarship recipients are minority and more than two-thirds are female.   
Scholarship recipients will be spotlighted during ACE’s 25th Anniversary dinner on May 14. This event takes place at the Gaylord National Resort, in National Harbor, Md., just outside Washington, D.C.  For details visit
