The PENTA Building Group Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

The PENTA Building Group has established a scholarship program to assist high school seniors or undergraduates who plan to continue their education in college at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas or an accredited four-year college or university in southern California.

The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to The PENTA Building Group Scholarship Program must be:

  • Be current high school seniors or undergraduate freshman (less than 24 undergraduate credits earned).
  • Plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at Arizona State University (ASU), University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) or an accredited four-year college or university in southern California for the entire upcoming academic year.
  • Plan to major in Construction Management or Civil Engineering.
  • Have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or its equivalent.

Awards will range from $5,000 to $7,500. Up to three (3) awards will be granted. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher and continuation of the program by the PENTA Building Group. Additionally, recipients must perform a paid internship for PENTA either the summer of their sophomore or junior year of undergraduate study to remain eligible for renewal.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.
