03-07-2022 | Uncategorized

The innovative roofing solutions company awarded $20,000 in scholarships in late 2021 to these four deserving students.

For over 100 years, SOPREMA has been offering advanced solutions with their roofing, waterproofing, wall protection and civil engineering systems and products. In an effort to maintain industry growth, they have been offering four students a $5,000 scholarship to pursue degrees in the building envelope field.

The scholarship is awarded to students who want to study engineering, architecture, construction management or a similar building envelope field. Winners are selected based on academic record, honors, work experience and demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities. They also submitted an essay and an online recommendation. Financial need is not considered when awarding scholarships.
