Scholarship: MTU CEE Pipeline Partner Scholarship

The CEE Pipeline Partner Scholarship program is an opportunity for students to connect to grow their civil and construction industry networks while receiving an up-to-five-year, recurring scholarship. The scholarship is thanks to partnerships from a growing list of civil and construction industry firms, including Jay Dee Contractors, Rowe Professional Services, Great Lakes Engineering Group, JL Kloote, Dan’s Excavating, AJAX, Fieldstone Architecture and Engineers, and Anlaan Corporation.

To be eligible, students must major and make progress in civil engineering, geospatial engineering, or construction management, while maintaining a 2.5 GPA. As part of the program, students will be connected to civil and construction industry representatives.

Students receiving the scholarship will be required to post their resume for review by the Pipeline Partners, post a video about themselves and their interests, and write a thank you to the Pipeline Portal Partners.

Students will receive the support from the Pipeline Portal Partners such as preparation for preparing for interviews, connections and mentors in the civil and construction industry, and ultimately cultivating internship and full-time employment opportunities through the partnerships.

Deadline for submission: Preference will be given to recipients apply by March 10th. However, scholarships will be awarded until all resources have been exhausted.
