The ACA Foundation is committed to advancing corrosion mitigation through education by providing scholarships, bursaries and awards for academic excellence. An exciting new corporate sponsorship by Denso Australia was announced at the Corrosion & Prevention 2018 in Adelaide.

In announcing the sponsorship, Paul Fortune said,

“In honour of David Winn OBE, it is with great pride that Denso Australia confirms its sponsorship of an educational scholarship aimed at developing the skillset of ACA members through the ACA Foundation

The scholarship, named the Denso Award will contribute to the development of ACA Members’ skills through sponsorship of recipients’ ACA or NACE training courses and conference attendance. 

In total, Denso Australia has committed $50,000 to be made available to members over the next 5 years, with $10,000 dollars awarded annually to winners whom will be selected by an independent panel of judges.”
