Structural Engineering/Architecture Student Scholarship Program
Simpson Strong-Tie established a scholarship program in 1996 to provide financial assistance to structural engineering and architecture students at participating colleges and universities throughout the United States.
FLASH®/Simpson Strong-Tie® Structural Engineering & Construction Scholarship
Along with the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH®), Simpson Strong-Tie sponsors an annual scholarship for college students focused on structural engineering and construction. The scholarship program was created in the 2012/2013 academic year as a higher education extension of StormStruck: A Tale of Two Homes®, the interactive severe weather experience at INNOVENTIONS at Epcot® at the Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida. The program has provided $24,000 to 16 students at nine universities to date. Scholarship winners are recognized at the FLASH Annual Conference.
