Submissions for Lee S. Evans Scholarships Due by Dec. 8
Submissions for the Lee S. Evans/National Housing Endowment Scholarship, awarded to exemplary students who major in construction-related fields, are due no later than Friday, Dec. 8.
The scholarships award graduates and undergraduates pursuing degrees in residential construction management up to $5,000 each year.
“Lee and Virginia Evans started this scholarship in 1993 to provide the most outstanding students studying construction management industry recognition for their hard work and academic achievements,” said Bruno Pasquinelli, chair of the Lee Evans scholarship committee.
“Many of the recipients would not have been able to pursue their educations without such financial assistance,” Pasquinelli continued. “The Lee Evans scholarship committee and I are proud to serve as stewards of Lee and Virginia’s vision.”
The Lee Evans scholarship recipients will be announced in February at the 2007 International Builders Show in Orlando, Fla. Seventeen students were awarded $55,600 for the 2006 academic year.
The National Housing Endowment, the philanthropic arm of NAHB, administers 12 scholarship programs and awards more than $320,000 each year to students pursuing careers in residential construction and related fields.
