For the 15th consecutive year, the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) has awarded scholarships to children of employees of AAMA member companies who are pursuing degrees in engineering or technical fields related to the building-products industries.
The scholarship winners were announced during the 2015 AAMA Summer Conference, which is currently underway in Seattle. Nine partner scholarship recipients were also announced.
“AAMA is very proud of this year’s group of AAMA Scholarship Program winners,” says president and CEO Rich Walker. “We are pleased to support the efforts of a new generation of leaders and to help expand their knowledge in the building industry.”
The AAMA scholarship is a one-time award of $2,000. All children of employees of AAMA member companies are eligible. Applicants are judged on grade point average, college entrance exam scores and a 500-word essay. Eligible candidates must be high school seniors or college students.
The 2015 Florence Nicolici Honorary Scholarship Award went to Page Shovelton, a soon-to-be freshman at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She will be pursuing a degree in engineering, and she is interested in math and science. Her father, Robert Shovelton, is an employee of Keymark Corp. in Fonda, N.Y.
