Local Builders Pledge Scholarship Endowment
March 31, 2017
The initial gift is the first installment of their pledge to build a $10,000 endowment that will fund a scholarship to benefit future civil engineering students at ASU. The pair also hopes to involve other local builders and construction companies to increase the endowment even further.
Sunbelt Construction is a local general contractor specializing in commercial construction. Its offices are located at 2007 W. Beauregard Ave.
This is the second scholarship endowment for ASU’s civil engineering program that is now in its second year after admitting its first students in the fall of 2015. This summer, the entire department is scheduled to move into the new Hunter Strain Engineering Laboratories building. Construction of the new building is being funded by a previous gift of $4.5 million from an anonymous donor.
