The Terracon Consultants Scholarship Fund was established in January 2020 through a $50,000 National Partner Grant from the Terracon Foundation. The Foundation's pledge will be used to annually award a $2,000 scholarship through the Trust's At-Large Scholarship program to engineering students attending any U.S. college or university.
Terracon is an employee-owned engineering consulting firm with more than 5,000 employees providing environmental, facilities, geotechnical, and materials services from more than 150 offices with services in all 50 states. Terracon ranks in the Top 25 on Engineering News-Record's list of Top 500 Design Firms.
The Terracon Foundation was established with a goal to reach out and become a real part of the lives of Terracon employees and the communities where they live and work. The Terracon Foundation encourages employees to submit grant requests each year for organizations focused on education and the built and natural environment. Andrew Verity, national account manager for Terracon's transportation and infrastructure sector and member of the DFI Educational Trust Board of Trustees, championed the grant application.
