Student Scholarships

The Charles Nicolay Educational Foundation was set up to support Iowa students continuing their education in the Construction / Architecture / Engineering field. 

About the Scholarship Program


  • Must be an Iowa high school student or college student;
  • Must attend an Iowa institution;
  • Attend a program related to construction/architecture/engineering/masonry field; and
