Six Local Students Receive $15,000 in College Scholarships from SITE Improvement Association

By on April 1, 2019

The SITE Improvement Association has awarded a total of $15,000 in scholarships to six deserving St. Louis area students to further their education in college or technical schools in 2019.  High school seniors and college students with a parent employed by one of the 200 SITE member companies are eligible for the $2,500 scholarships, which are based on students’ academic achievements, involvement in the community and financial need. Nearly $300,000 in scholarships has been awarded to 145 students since SITE began awarding scholarships 19 years ago, making it one of the largest and longest continuously running scholarship programs in the local construction industry.

SITE scholarships are made possible through voluntary contributions from SITE member companies and from the SITE Advancement Foundation.

“Through the years, SITE’s membership has been extremely supportive of high school and college students seeking to further their education,” said Terry Briggs, Executive Director of SITE.  “We want to see these students be successful in whatever field they choose to pursue.”
