W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., 16 January 2009-Applications are currently being accepted for the 2009 ASTM International Katharine and Bryant Mather Scholarship. Administered by ASTM International Committee C09 on Concrete and Concrete Aggregates, the scholarship applies to students pursuing degrees specializing in cement or concrete materials technology or concrete construction.

Full-time undergraduate students completing their second/sophomore year of college or later, or graduate students specializing in cement or concrete materials technology are eligible to apply. The 2009 Katharine and Bryant Mather Scholarship consists of $7,500 of tuition assistance. The deadline for applications for this year's scholarship is April 30, 2009.

The scholarship honors Katharine and Bryant Mather, who together contributed in excess of 100 years to the investigation and research on the effects of various concrete materials and construction techniques, and on the ability of hydraulic-cement concretes to remain durable under aggressive exposure conditions.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers named the lab where the Mathers worked for 50 years "The Katharine and Bryant Mather Building." In ASTM International, the Mathers were well known for many decades of leadership, dedication and technical knowledge.
