A new scholarship program from the Black & Veatch Foundation will result in $20,000 in tuition and book assistance for four MCC students studying engineering technology — $5,000 each. The scholarships, announced July 16, will help the engineering firm find "tomorrow’s young talent who can help develop innovative solutions in the company’s growing global transmission business."
This marks another step in the relationship between our ETEC program and Black & Veatch. MCC has worked with Black & Veatch to help students land internships and jobs, and professionals from the company have sat on our ETEC advisory board for the last several years.
"This is an exciting opportunity for students starting our program, both to complete a degree debt-free and to get a foot in the door at one of the largest engineering firms in KC," says Marcus Million, ETEC and CADD program coordinator.
The first MCC scholarships are expected to be awarded through the MCC Foundation this school year, with the hope that they’ll continue in years to come. Incidentally, Black & Veatch, headquartered in Overland Park, was founded in 1915, the same year as MCC (originally known as the Kansas City Polytechnic Institute).
Black & Veatch scholarships will also go to students/prospective employees at three other regional institutions. Read the news release.
