One of the most visible ways in which the Oregon Concrete & Aggregate Producers Association promotes the future well-being of the construction materials industry is through scholarships.
The OCAPA scholarship program offers scholarships to university students who intend to pursue a career in the construction materials industry. Scholarships will be awarded to junior, senior, or graduate students enrolled at an Oregon university or college encompassing disciplines related to the constructions materials industry.
Areas of study may include, but are not limited to, construction materials, engineering, geology, architecture, land use planning, biology, environmental law and fish & wildlife studies.
The program represents a tangible demonstration of OCAPA’s commitment to higher education which we regard as an investment in the future of our state and the construction materials industry. In the future we look forward to expanding the extent and reach of this exciting and worthwhile program.
To apply for an OCAPA Scholarship, please encourage your students to complete an application packet. The application must include these three items:
- The completed application;
- On a separate sheet of paper, a 300 to 500-word statement of his/her career plan and how it relates to the construction materials industry.
- A letter of recommendation from a professor, employer or other relevant acquaintance is suggested, but not required.
