Eligible students must attend a post-secondary institution of learning that requires a high school diploma or its equivalent for admission, including any public or private four-year accredited college or university; two-year accredited college; or vocational technical college or training institution. MBA candidates and master’s degree students in civil engineering, construction management and other construction-related programs will also be considered.
