Pence Construction Diversity in Leadership Scholarship Fund Posted on February 13, 2020 by Karla Holland Purpose: To support underrepresented students of color in pursuing a degree in Construction Engineering Management. “People of color are under-represented in the commercial construction industry here in Oregon. We believe the industry demographics should, at very least, represent the area it serves. Additionally, there is tremendous potential for high-wage employment in construction. A critical way to increase opportunities for underrepresented people of color in the industry is to create a leadership cadre who can grow participation organically.” – Paul Schulz, Principal, Pence Construction Eligibility Criteria Oregon residents with a preference for Multnomah County residents Must be enrolled full-time Major: Construction Engineering at Oregon State University Award Size $10,000 per year, students can reapply for up to five years of support.
