9th Lizzi Scholarship winner, Kelly Flanagan, with Sue Frank, TEI Rock Drills

ISM awards the Lizzi Scholarship to graduate students to attend the International Workshop on Micropiles.

The scholarship is named for Dr. Fernando Lizzi (1913-2003), the visionary leader of ISM and the inventor of the "pali radice" or original "root pile" foundation system.

Applicants must reside in the country where the workshop is being hosted, be enrolled in graduate studies, and be either proposing to conduct or currently conducting research on micropiles.

The scholarship award includes travel and accommodations expenses for attendance at the workshop, complimentary workshop registration and a selection of micropile publications. Recipients deliver a short presentation on their research.
