Established in 1956, NCSPA promotes sound public policy relating to the use of corrugated steel drainage structures in private and public construction. Member fabricating companies of NCSPA are estimated to produce nearly ninety-five percent of all domestic pipe production. Associate members include mill producers, coaters and suppliers of products and services to the industry.
It collects and distributes technical information; assists public and private agencies in the formulation of specifications and designs; encourages greater knowledge of corrugated steel pipe’s benefits and uses among college engineering students; and conducts seminars to increase awareness of the product and its application among specifiers. The resiliency of corrugated steel pipe design and coatings, along with the steel industry’s unparalleled sustainability, positions steel as a best choice for engineers, specifiers, and contractors.

All scholarship applicants must submit complete applications directly to the NERI office by emailing your package to by February 15, 2023.
