CM Scholarship Opportunities

The scholarships available through the Construction Management Department are listed below. The department receives numerous scholarship opportunities from companies or organizations related to the construction industry. These scholarships are divided into two types: Outside Scholarships and Departmental Scholarships

Outside Scholarships:

These are scholarships that are offered to any student on any campus who meets certain Construction Management based criteria. Often times these are local or statewide organizations who contact us and want to promote their scholarship. The department maintains a binder at the front desk in the main office, 186-A100. You are welcome to browse these offerings and the department will make a copy of any that are of interest to you.

Departmental Scholarships:

These are scholarships that are available to Cal Poly Construction Management students only. The department oversees the application, collection, and disbursement of these scholarships. The department has a working relationship with the donors and makes sure that their criteria are met.
