National Competition Funding
Winners and first runners-up from most conferences are invited to compete at the national level. However, invitations are extended only to the winner from a conference with two, three or four participating universities, and to the top three teams from a conference with eleven or more participating universities. A university may enter more than one bridge in conference competition but only the best one may qualify for national competition.
At the national level, AISC assists with travel funds for teams from North American schools invited to compete. Each qualifying team from each conference from North American schools receives $500 from AISC.
AISC provides additional funding support to the National Competition host school.
Conference Competition Funding
Conference competitions are held in conjunction with the eighteen ASCE conferences. Each North American university entering a steel bridge in any conference competition receives $250 from AISC. The host university receives $500 from AISC to assist with expenses incurred in organizing the Conference Student Steel Bridge Competition. In addition, AISC provides plaques for all of the competitions.
