AACE International is dedicated to advancing the study of cost engineering and cost management through the integrative process of Total Cost Management as outlined in AACE’s TCM Framework document. To promote this objective, AACE awards academic scholarships to full-time students pursuing a related degree in engineering, construction management, building construction, computer sciences, business, quantity surveying, information technology, etc. The cost engineering profession uses the process of Total Cost Management to identify and define those areas of business in which the discipline of cost engineering and cost management principles may be applied to plan and control resources, assets, costs, profitability, and risk. The major elements of the cost engineering discipline include estimating, project/product controls, planning and scheduling, business sciences, and project/product management. Although applicants may be citizens of any country, they must be enrolled in a college or university in the US or Canada.
