Submissions for Lee S. Evans Scholarships Due Oct. 30



Lee and Virginia Evans

Submissions for the Lee S. Evans/National Housing Endowment Scholarship, awarded to exemplary students who major in construction-related fields for the 2010-2011 academic year, are due no later than Friday, Oct. 30.

The scholarships award graduates and undergraduates pursuing degrees in residential construction management in two- and four-year colleges and universities up to $5,000 each year. High school students are not eligible.

“Lee and Virginia Evans started this scholarship to provide the most outstanding students studying construction management with industry recognition for their hard work and academic achievements,” said Bruno Pasquinelli, chair of the Lee Evans scholarship committee. “This scholarship has come to mean so much to the recipients, many of whom would not be able to pursue their educations without such financial assistance.”

Sixteen students were awarded $58,000 in scholarships for the 2009 academic year. Since the Lee Evans scholarship fund was founded in 1993, 170 students have been awarded more than $475,000.

The Lee Evans scholarship recipients for the 2010-2011 academic year will be announced in January at the 2010 International Builders' Show in Las Vegas.

The National Housing Endowment, the philanthropic arm of NAHB, administers 10 scholarship programs and annually awards more than $350,000 to students pursuing careers in residential construction and related fields.
