  • Septagon Construction Scholarship

    May 15, 2023

    The Shareholders of Septagon Construction are happy to announce that the 2022-2023 Academic Scholarships are now available. Our goal for this scholarship is to encourage and aid students who pursue professional, construction-related degrees. We plan to award at least 1 scholarship of five hundred ($500) to a student residing in each of our major office locations, or a minimum of six scholarships each year.

    Applicants may be graduating high school seniors or current college/university/trade school students already pursuing a degree or certification. It is our desire to encourage young students to enter our industry at a professional level. High school seniors will be scored equally with college students. Our scholarship is also not automatically renewable, but by applying each year, it is possible for a qualified candidate to receive the scholarship multiple times.
