Presentations by ISM Lizzi Scholarship recipients are available on the ISM website. There are nine presentations delivered since 2004 on a wide range of topics such as Quality Assurance of Neat-Cement Grout, Micropiles for Heat Exchange or Buckling of Slender Piles.

The Lizzi Scholarship is awarded to graduate students to attend the International Workshop on Micropiles. Applicants must reside in the country where the workshop is being hosted, be enrolled as a graduate student, and either be proposing to conduct or currently conducting research 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.
