The SOPREMA Scholarship Program offers undergraduate and graduate students a bright future by investing in their higher education. Offered by SOPREMA, the scholarship assists students pursuing degrees in architecture, engineering, construction management, or a similar field at an accredited four-year college or university.
As an international manufacturer of building envelope and civil engineering construction materials, SOPREMA has a vested interest in contributing to the development of the next generation of the building envelope industry. This national scholarship awards $5,000 to each recipient, and up to four awards are granted each year. Although the awards are not renewable, students are encouraged to reapply each year of their studies for a chance to earn the scholarship again.
The program is administered by Scholarship America, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability or national origin. Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of SOPREMA. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
You are eligible for this program if you are:
A high school senior or graduate or current postsecondary undergraduate or graduate student pursuing a degree in architecture, engineering, construction management or a similar field*
*Similar field must be applicable to those seeking a career related to the building envelope (i.e., roofing, wall systems, below grade waterproofing, etc.).
Planning to enroll in full-time undergraduate or graduate study at an accredited four-year college or university for the entire 2022-23 academic year
SOPREMA employees and their family members are ineligible.
