GANA Educational Foundation Accepting Scholarship
Applications for 2011
February 7, 2011
The Glass Association of North America (GANA) Educational Foundation announced today it is accepting applications for its 2011 scholarships. In addition to the minimum five $1,000 scholarships it will award to undergrads, the Foundation is also offering a graduate scholarship of $2,500. Since the beginning of the effort, the Foundation has awarded several scholarships to students studying in the fields of architecture, construction management or engineering. The graduate scholarship also includes business students. This marks the fourth year of the program.
"GANA created this program in 2006 as a way to give back to the industry," said Bill Yanek, GANA executive vice president. "By awarding students who will become an integral part of our industry, we hope to encourage the increased usage of glass in commercial architecture."
Funding for the program includes proceeds from GANA's BEC Conference for the past several years. The next BEC Conference will be held March 27-29 at the Paris Las Vegas Resort in Las Vegas.
Additional information about the program, as well as a downloadable application form, are available on the GANA Educational Foundation website.
Deadline for scholarship applications is April 1, 2011.
