Scholarship Opportunities

The Structural Engineers Association of Colorado has started a scholarship fund. Bob Voiland, one of the founding partners of JVA, Inc., a consulting structural engineering company in Boulder, Colorado, had a vision and provided initial funding to establish a continuing scholarship program for support of Colorado's future structural engineers. Bob's vision became reality in 2009 when the SEAC Scholarship Fund, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, was formed.

In November of 2009, the SEAC Scholarship Fund, Inc. began to solicit donations to create a lasting endowment. To date over $124,000 has been donated by dedicated individuals and related firms in the consulting, construction, and insurance industries.

Two $4,000 scholarships will be awarded each spring. The winning students must be upperclassmen attending an accredited engineering school. They must intend to practice structural engineering in Colorado. Selection criteria include the student's academic achievement, involvement in the community, professional involvement, and volunteer work. There will be an application phase followed by a selective interview process.
