Studying Construction or Engineering? Here’s A $2K Scholarship Opportunity
Whether you’ve chosen to attend a trade school or go the more traditional path of a four-year college degree, you already know that getting an education beyond high school is pretty pricy.
I know — I don’t have to tell you twice.
So I’ll cut right to the chase: We’ve got a scholarship for anyone attending a university, college, trade or vocational school who is planning to go into a construction- or engineering-related field of just about any sort.
Geneva Rock Products, Inc. is a Utah-based supplier of construction products and services. The company recently announced a scholarship program for “students dedicated to building the future,” in hopes of encouraging more people to enter construction-related industries.
So if you’re attending school for anything from welding to civil engineering, this scholarship opportunity is for you.
