DJ&A is committed to supporting the academic success of our country’s future engineers, surveyors, GIS professionals, landscape architects, and environmental scientists, especially women and minority-status students who continue to be underrepresented in our industry.

We’re excited to share that after a successful inaugural year in which five students were awarded scholarships, our Diversity Scholarship is back for the 2022-2023 academic year.
