2011 Student Internship Grantees

The MCAA Career Development Committee recently awarded 2011 grants to MCAA student chapters and to contractor members who hire student interns. Funded by the Mechanical Contracting Education & Research Foundation's (MCERF) Funding Educational Excellence Initiative (FEE), the grants help support the Career Development program's mission, which is to attract well-qualified future professionals to our industry. The committee approved 10 Chapter of Excellence Grants. Emerging Chapter Grants went to 4 student chapters. Half those funds must be used for student scholarships. The remaining funds are to help support chapter projects and travel to the Student Chapter Summit and the MCAA convention. The committee also approved 76 Student Internship Grants (each $1,200) for MCAA contractor members who hire students as interns (see below). All of the grants, but especially the Student Internship Grants, bring the students into closer contact with contractors and the industry in action. The students learn more about our industry, the business of contracting, mechanical systems and professional skills at the convention, the Student Chapter Summit, on the job and by participating in local field trips to project sites and local association sponsor membership events. The grant funds will be distributed in mid-August.
