BridgeportT, CT – Sophia Rotar-Crowe of Fairfield has been awarded the 2020 Viking Construction Education Scholarship.  Rotar-Crowe, who plans to study architecture and construction management at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island, will receive $1,000 per year each year she remains in the program (up to $4,000 total). The scholarship was presented virtually because of COVID restrictions.

Viking created this scholarship in 2012 to support the general community and, as much as possible, those pursuing construction-related careers.  To date, the company has committed $36,000 to students.  Applicants need to complete an in-depth submission and essay, along with an in-person interview to be considered for the award, and they must maintain a 2.7 grade point average minimum to continue to receive the award.
