The Deep Foundations Institue (DFI) Educational Trust and the DFI Women in Deep Foundations (WiDF) Committee are proud to provide professional development grant opportunities to women involved in the design and construction of deep foundations. The goal of WiDF is to increase networking opportunities and improve retention of female professionals in the deep foundations industry. The future of our industry depends upon diversity, which can be influenced by encouraging promising female professionals to remain in deep foundations careers.

Five travel grants of $1,750 each and free full annual conference registrations will be awarded in 2024. The grants must be used to cover lodging, meals, travel, and other related expenses for the recipients’ attendance of DFI’s 49th Annual Conference in Aurora, Colo. The recipients will be featured in Deep Foundations, DFI’s magazine, and will be recognized at the conference during the WiDF Committee Reception and the Awards Banquet.

One complete application (including application form, essay, résumé, and letter of recommendation) must be submitted online no later than May 15. Applications missing any of the required items will not be considered.

DFI will notify all applicants of the status of their applications on or about July 3.
