Student Assistant Scholarship
The Facilities Services Student Assistant Scholarship Fund was created to provide a scholarship opportunity for student assistants within the department who are receiving real world experience in their chosen field of study.
Established in late 2017, the fund targets students at the junior, senior and graduate level. Applicants are asked to demonstrate how their experience at Facilities Services is directly tied to their chosen field of study. Only paid student assistants are eligible for this award.
The third Facilities Services Student Assistant Scholarship will be awarded for the 2020-2021 academic year.
The deadline to submit applications for the 2020-2021 academic year is May 15, 2020. Only paid Facilities Services student assistants are eligible for the award. The application can be found here.
