The National Housing Endowment/Lee S. Evans Scholarship is geared towards students who have a demonstrable interest in a post college career in the residential construction industry. Applicants must be registered as a full-time undergraduate or graduate student and have at least one full academic year of course work remaining after the scholarship is awarded (Note: Students who will be a fifth year senior during the award year are not eligible.).
Building homes for the nation is too important a priority to neglect the education, training and research that will be needed to support the residential construction industry. The National Housing Endowment is answering the call by continuing to find avenues to educate students on the many opportunities a career in construction offers. Mr. Evans, an educator and consultant, has taught thousands of builders how to better manage their businesses. The Evans’ endowed gift, along with the contributions of Mr. Evans’ friends, colleagues and former students, created the scholarship fund to assist in addressing the pressing need for educating and training construction managers in the residential building industry.
