Natalia Escobar received a $4500 scholarship from the Southern California Contractors Association (SCCA). She applied in late June. Steve Murow, Principal/CEO forwarded the information from the association seeking applicants. Their purpose is to assist & encourage students seeking an engineering and construction degree. Bryon Barker, Cost Estimating Manager, wrote a very meaningful recommendation letter, that I’m sure, helped her stand out from other applicants. She will be attending a dinner on August 9th for the award ceremony.
In addition to the SCCA Scholarship, she also received a scholarship in the amount of $2000 from the Engineering Contractors Association (ECA). She also heard about this scholarship through Steve Murow who forwarded emails about it and reminders to apply. Her civil engineering professor wrote her recommendation letter and the application was turned in July 7th. She will be attending their award-winning barbeque dinner on July 27th.
Murow Development Consultants has always been generous with helping students achieve their goals. “If it wasn’t for Steve Murow, I would’ve never known about this opportunity,” Natalia said. “Murow Development Consultants has always been happy to open the door of opportunities for their employees. They have always worked with my school schedule and have encouraged me to continue my education.”
Last semester, she also applied for scholarships through CSULB and was awarded the Beavers Heavy Construction Scholarship in the amount of $2,250. This scholarship was available to civil engineering and construction engineering management students at CSULB. In addition, she obtained a University CAL grant in the amount of $5,742.
In total, she has received $14,492 in scholarships and grants this year! Congratulations Natalia!
Natalia interned with us last summer and back with us as a working employee this summer as assistant project manager. She is currently a senior at CSULB studying civil engineering and will be graduating in spring 2018. In addition, she is taking extra electives to get a better understanding of structural engineering. She plans to go to graduate school after she graduates for a Professional Engineer License.
