At SmithGroup, we are focused on exploring ways to Design A Better Future. One of our opportunities to achieve this objective is through our efforts to create a more diverse workforce in our industry. In support of this goal, we are proud to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2022 SmithGroup Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (J.E.D.I.) Scholarship Program.
Now entering its fifth year, this program’s mission is to provide students from historically underrepresented groups with the opportunity to attain their professional goals while advancing the architecture/engineering/construction (AEC) industry and improving the built environment. As you can see in this video, the program is truly making an impact in the lives of these students.
The program provides a one-time award of $6,000 to five talented students to help offset their tuition at their current academic institution. Additionally, the scholarship recipients will serve as paid summer interns at any SmithGroup office in the United States where their discipline is located.
The deadline for entry is October 29, 2021, so we encourage you to share this information with the faculty, staff and students at your institutions and invite eligible students to apply.
If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com. We look forward to receiving the entries from your students.
