Dear Member,

We are now soliciting applications for the 2020 MBCEA Carolinas Chapter College Scholarship.  The MBCEA Carolinas Chapter awards this college scholarship annually to promote our industry and benefit our members.  Our Scholarship Program is open to any enrolled college student or college-bound high school senior.

The MBCEA Carolinas Annual Scholarship is valued at $9,000.00 for 2020 ($6,000.00 to deserving student(s) plus a $1,000.00 award in honor of Jim Watson).   The Doug & Joyce Deaton Scholarship Fund is also valued at a $500 single award.  We also have $1,500.00 in scholarship money sponsored by LeJune Bolt Company for 2020.

These scholarships are open to any child, step-child, or grandchild of an active employee of a dues paying member of the MBCEA Carolinas Chapter or Lifetime Member.  Associate Members’ employees who work in the Carolinas area are also eligible.  Preference is given to students who are seeking 4-year degrees in engineering or construction-related fields.  However, applicants of any field of study are considered.

We encourage you to review your employee ranks for eligible students and encourage them to apply.  Please contact me via e-mail or call me at  803-238-6565 for an application.

All applications must be submitted to me by April 17th, 2020 or sooner.
