Milek Fellowship Information
Each year, AISC selects a promising young university faculty member as the AISC Milek Fellow (formerly the AISC Faculty Fellow), a four-year, $50,000-per-year award. The award was renamed after William A. Milek Jr., former AISC Vice President of Engineering and Research, to recognize his invaluable contributions to AISC and the structural steel industry as a whole.
Part of the value of this program to AISC, the selected fellow, and the university is the public recognition of the honor. The faculty member whose application is selected will be identified as the AISC Milek Fellow in selected publications and other venues, will be presented with a Milek Fellow certificate, and will receive free registration at NASCC: The Steel Conferencefor the four years following their selection as Milek Fellow. The faculty member is to use this fellowship to support students with high potential to be valuable contributors to the U.S. structural steel construction industry and should strive to fund a doctoral candidate with at least half of the fellowship money. The subject of study may be chosen from a wide arrray of topics in steel design and construction.
