The PCI Foundation has established a scholarship in memory of University of Washington Professor Alan Mattock and his contributions to the precast/prestressed concrete industry over a long career.

The PCI Foundation has established a scholarship in memory of University of Washington Professor Alan Mattock and his contributions to the precast/prestressed concrete industry over a long career. In addition to extensive research, he is credited with influencing generations of young engineers, and was named Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute Distinguished Educator.

PCI Foundation officials view Dr. Mattock as a driving force in precast/prestressed concrete, owing especially to this Research and Development Committee participation. A career filled with awards, high-profile committee work, and many published papers, he retired in 1990. Following his death in June 2014, contemporaries and others who worked with him on PCI projects felt that a memorial scholarship for research-minded students would be appropriate.
