Submissions for Lee S. Evans Scholarships Due Dec. 7
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. 7.
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 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. “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.”
Fourteen students were awarded $48,000 in scholarships for the 2007 academic year. Since the Lee Evans scholarship fund was founded in 1993, 154 students were awarded more than $385,000.
The Lee Evans scholarship recipients for the 2008 academic year will be announced in February at the 2008 International Builders Show in Orlando.
The National Housing Endowment, the philanthropic arm of NAHB, administers 12 scholarship programs and annually awards more than $400,000 to students pursuing careers in residential construction and related fields.
