Every year, West Michigan Minorities In Architecture/Engineering Consortium (WMMIAEC) offers several educational scholarship opportunities. The financial assistance is for qualified ethnic minorities and women who are pursuing careers in the fields of architecture, engineering, and science disciplines. Each grant is $1,000 per academic year. The educational grant may be renewed for qualified recipients on an annual basis; however, grant eligibility will not exceed a total of four years per recipient.
The deadline to submit an application is Sunday, August 1, 2021 to qualify for fall 2021 semester grant selection.
You can find the full grant application here. As part of the selection process, applicants may be required to interview with WMMIAEC representatives. Final selections for the scholarships will be determined in September 2021.
