Any currently enrolled junior college student, undergraduate or graduate-level student who will be registered in the fall term of the year of award and has a focused career interest in structural engineering (to be defined in the personal statement) and/or is actively pursuing a structural engineering degree. Scholarships will be awarded only to those students who will employ them to continue their formal undergraduate or graduate education at a recognized educational institution. Previous holders of these scholarships are eligible to apply in any succeeding competition for these awards provided the other requirements of eligibility are satisfied.
The NCSEA Foundation established the NCSEA Diversity in Structural Engineering Scholarship to award funding to students who have been traditionally underrepresented in structural engineering (including but not limited to Black/African Americans, Native/Indigenous Americans, Hispanics/Latinos and other people of color). Multiple scholarships up to $5,000 each will be presented annually to junior college students, undergraduate students and/or graduate students pursuing degrees in structural engineering.
