Applications open for 2017 ORBA scholarships
April 10, 2017 – Ontario Road Builders’ Association (ORBA) is now accepting applications for its 2017 Civil Engineering and Civil Engineering Technology Scholarships, each valued at $2,000.00.
The submission deadline is May 31, 2017.
The Civil Engineering Scholarship is awarded to a student graduating from an Ontario high school and entering the first year of a Civil Engineering program at an Ontario university.
The Civil Engineering Technology Scholarship is awarded to a student graduating from an Ontario high school and entering the first year of a Civil Engineering Technology or Technician program at an Ontario college or equivalent.
“It’s important for ORBA to offer financial support to those students who are going to become the next generation of road builders,” said John Blake, ORBA Education Committee Co-Chair.
Adds Geoffrey Stephens, ORBA Education Committee Co-Chair, “We look forward every year to help students who are entering a civil engineering program develop the skills and knowledge to be successful when they join our industry.”
Applicants are required to submit an essay describing why they are pursuing a post secondary engineering or engineering technology education and discussing their goals in pursuing a career in civil engineering/technology. Past work experience, particularly directly related to the civil construction or broader construction industry, is a key criterion. Involvement with special projects or volunteer activities that demonstrate a commitment to the applicant’s local community, school or charitable organization is heavily factored into the assessment along with reference letters from employers and recommendations from professors.
Additional details and applications are available online at orba.org/scholarships.
