Kiewit Building Group Inc., one of Hawaii’s leading general contractors, is accepting applications for its 2013 scholarship awards which focuses on nurturing future community leaders.

Kiewit’s program, now in its sixth consecutive year, will award three scholarships of $2,500 each to Hawaii high school seniors who plan to pursue a degree in architecture, construction management or engineering. Applications must be postmarked by March 30, 2013.

Kiewit Building Group initiated the scholarship program for high school seniors as a way to support local students who will be the community’s future leaders.  To date, the scholarship program has awarded nearly $40,000 in scholarships.

“Kiewit wants to recognize individual achievement and support those students who have aspirations to work in the construction industry,” said Sheri Mau, director of administrative services at Kiewit, in a written statement.

“We also view this as an investment in students who could be Kiewit employees in a few years after completing their college education.”
