We support students


We want to give you your best chance at success. Our scholarship program is for students who are committed to their community, technical discipline, and professional development. In addition to receiving financial assistance to support your education, if you win a McElhanney scholarship, you get to interview for a summer co-op position at your local branch. These opportunities often lead to full-time careers with us!

Learn more about scholarships


Our co-op students apply what they’ve learned in school, witness how a project transitions from design to construction, and gain access to multidisciplinary professionals who have decades of experience, and plenty of lessons learned to share.
