MBP was founded in 1989 by Frank McDonough, Charlie Bolyard, and Blake Peck, three engineers who shared the vision of building a professional construction management consulting company based on six core values: We Act with Integrity, We Deliver Quality, We Are One Team, We Are Driven to Succeed, We Are Innovative, and We Care About Our Community. The MBP Founders’ Scholarship was established to provide financial assistance to qualified and deserving students attending institutes of higher learning specializing in an engineering/technical curriculum related to the construction management industry. Successful applicants will have a demonstrated desire to pursue a career within the construction management industry.
The scholarship is fully funded by MBP and the amount of the scholarship for the 2022-2023 academic year will be one or more scholarships of $5,000 to $10,000.
Successful applicants will have a demonstrated desire to pursue a career within the construction management industry.
Applicants must be enrolled as a full-time student in a four-year undergraduate or graduate program in an engineering/technical program with a focus on construction management at an accredited college or university. No scholarship will be awarded for those pursuing an Associate Degree. Applicants who receive an appointment to one of the U.S. Military Academies (or affiliated preparatory schools) or are awarded a full scholarship at any accredited College or University are not eligible to receive funds from this scholarship. A full scholarship is usually defined as one that provides for payment of tuition, room and board, books, and lab fees.
This program is for returning undergraduate and graduate students. The applicant must have completed one full year of study to be eligible and be in good academic standing. Applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale.
