MCC is committed to encouraging students to pursue careers in concrete-related fields and to enhance the level of professionalism and industry engagement of our Minnesota students. In the past, scholarships were awarded every year to undergraduate engineering students by the Minnesota Concrete Council through the Minnesota Professional Engineers Foundation (MPEF), the non-profit, charitable foundation of MnSPE. Beginning in 2018, MCC will administrate its own $3,500 scholarship for engineers. Watch for details on the new MCC engineering scholarship by late summer, 2018. In the meantime, information about the MPEF engineering scholarship is located below.
What is the MN Professional Engineers Foundation (MPEF)?
MPEF promotes careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). We do this by providing scholarships to college students, sponsoring and staffing STEM community events, and providing financial support to existing education and outreach programs.
What criteria are used to award scholarships and who is eligible?
Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, essay and personal statement, work and volunteer experience, a letter of recommendation and more.
