Scholarships

The SMPS Columbus Scholarship Fund was established in 2017 to support current high school and higher education students and SMPS Columbus members who are pursuing and/or advancing their careers in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction and/or Marketing fields. The fund is supported by our Chapter’s annual Scholarship Golf Outing and donations collected throughout the program year. The dollar amount of each scholarship is consistent, but the maximum total number of scholarships awarded for the year will be dependent on the funds raised.

For the 2016-2017 Program Year, SMPS Columbus raised $12,000 for the Scholarship Fund! On January 17, 2018, we will recognize eight (8) recipients of the following scholarships.
