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. This annual scholarship program is aimed at ensuring that the perspectives of women and minority-status individuals are included in the future of our industry.
We will award scholarships from $1,000 to $5,000 in support of education costs for qualified women and minority-status students who are pursuing or intend to pursue a degree in our firm’s areas of practice, including engineering, surveying, GIS, landscape architecture, and environmental sciences.
