WCPA is an association of construction companies that primarily pave Portland Cement Concrete pavement on Wisconsin’s highways,
airports, and municipal streets. Our purpose and goal are to promote and advance the concrete pavement industry to benefit of the taxpayers and roadway users of Wisconsin. Our companies work with and employee engineering graduates in effort to achieve our goals. Therefore, to encourage and support the future for our industry we annually give this scholarship.

It is our goal to award five $1,000 scholarships annually to one of each of Wisconsin’s civil engineering colleges. This includes the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, University of Wisconsin-Platteville, Marquette University and the Milwaukee School of Engineering. If there are no applications received or no qualified applicants from a particular school, the scholarships will be awarded at other schools.

All Wisconsin Civil Engineering Students are eligible, with special consideration given to undergraduate students with junior/senior status or graduate students with an emphasis in transportation, construction management, or materials engineering. The next deadline to apply is Thursday, December 1st, 2022.
