It’s exciting to expand on these efforts with the launch of the Henderson Companies Scholarship, which will empower the next generation of leaders within architecture, engineering, and construction.”

  • Be in pursuit of a degree in engineering, architecture, construction science, or a related technical program

  • Submit a letter of reference as well as a 500-word essay

Each recipient will receive $1,250 for the fall 2023 semester followed by $1,250 for the spring 2024 semester, given they maintain the requisite GPA and field of study. The scholarship is valid for one academic year, but recipients may reapply in subsequent years.
