Builders’ ORBA is now accepting applications for its Civil Engineering
and Civil Engineering Technology Scholarships, each valued at $2,000.00.
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.
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.
