As with all of the other DFI Educational Trust scholarship funds, the objective is to encourage and support students to pursue a career in the deep foundations industry. This scholarship is funded by individual and corporate donations to the DFI Educational Trust's General Fund.

Since 2008, the Trust's General Fund has awarded over $75,000 in scholarships to high school and college students.
