Lewis W. Newlan was a long-time supporter of the RCI-IIBEC Foundation and a dedicated member of IIBEC (formerly RCI). After his passing, the Foundation Board created a fund in his honor and in support of his stated commitment to education in this field for generations to come.
Established in 2013, the RCI Newlan Fund was created to provide a needs-based scholarship for students in the building envelope field of study. Four scholarships of $2,500 each will be given out annually to worthy undergraduate and graduate students. This scholarship is not renewable; however, recipients may re-apply up to four times in four years, provided they meet eligibility requirements.
Applications currently are being accepted through April 8 at 3 PM CST. For more information and to apply, go to https://learnmore.scholarsapply.org/rci-iibecfoundation.
