Scholarship Awards 

The University of Minnesota’s Construction Management Program has its collegiate home in the College of Continuing and Professional Studies. The CCAPS Scholarship Committee administers all scholarships and approves student scholarship awards on behalf of the College three times each year in fall, spring, and summer.

Construction Management students have four sources of tuition support at the University of Minnesota: 

  1. U-wide scholarships and financial aid (including federal and state aid), a subset of which are “cooperative” scholarships that support students in two or more colleges
  2. College of Continuing and Professional Studies scholarships
  3. Construction Management-only CCAPS scholarships
  4. Scholarships administered by industry associations
