Professional Women in Construction will announce scholarship recipients at the Annual Salute to Women of Achievement event. The scholarships are determined through the colleges we are working with, and will go to women who plan to go into construction related fields.
The Professional Women in Construction Annual Scholarship has been established at New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) to provide scholarship awards to young women in the NYIT School of Engineering & Computing Sciences and the NYIT School of Architecture & Design.
NYIT offers 90 degree programs, including undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees, in more than 50 fields of study, including architecture and design; arts and sciences; education; engineering and computing sciences; health professions; management; and osteopathic medicine. A non-profit independent, private institution of higher education, NYIT has 10,000 students in programs and campuses in New York (Manhattan and Old Westbury, Long Island) and Arkansas as well as China, Canada, and the United Arab Emirates. NYIT sponsors 13 NCAA Division II programs.
The Professional Women in Construction Scholarship has been established at Manhattan College in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering to provide academic scholarships to young women pursuing careers in construction related fields.
Manhattan College is a Lasallian Catholic institution founded in 1853 by the Brothers of the Christian Schools, a teaching order started by Saint John Baptist de La Salle, patron saint of teachers. Located just 10 miles from midtown, the college is made up of 3,444 undergraduate and 483 graduate students. The college offers over 50 degree programs and has 19 NCAA Division I teams. Manhattan’s Civil and Environmental Engineering program is the College’s oldest engineering program, founded in 1892. Since then, it has become an industry frontrunner — U.S. News & World Report routinely ranks our School of Engineering among the top 50 engineering schools in the nation whose highest degree is a bachelor’s or master’s.
