Civil/Construction Scholarships


Gus Anselmi Civil/Construction Engineering Technology Scholarships

Named after Gus Anselmi, a Trustee of CIAP, CIAP awards seventeen (17) $1,500 scholarships for students in Civil/Construction Engineering Technology at the associate degree level. Eligible students are nominated by their respective colleges. One or more scholarships may be awarded annually at each school; however, each award is approved by CIAP on a case-by-case basis.
