Support Students and Honor Clyde Baker

Join the DFI Educational Trust for a Chicago River Cruise and Cocktail Reception to raise funds for the Clyde N. Baker, Jr. Foundation Engineering Scholarship Fund. Established in 2020, the scholarship honors Baker’s extraordinary contributions to the deep foundations industry.

The first scholarship will be given to a deserving student this fall. The goal is to raise $180,000 through cruise participation and direct donations to bring the fund to a self-sustaining level so we can provide perpetual scholarships in Clyde’s name for years to come!
