MANHATTAN — Matt Forbus, Kansas State University senior in construction science and management from Wichita, has been awarded a scholarship from the Associated General Contractors, or AGC, of America’s Education and Research Foundation.
Forbus will receive the foundation’s Board of Certified Safety Professionals Scholarship in the amount of $2,500, which is renewable for up to three years. Recipients must want to have a career in the construction industry and be enrolled as full-time students.
Of the 117 AGC of America national scholarship recipients, Forbus has been chosen as one of just four to receive special recognition and be spotlighted at the AGC National Convention in September. AGC of America’s film crew will be traveling to Manhattan in early May to film him for the production video.
Andrew Sneed, instructor in K-State’s GE Johnson Department of Architectural Engineering and Construction Science, is Forbus' adviser.
The AGC Education and Research Foundation, founded in 1968, supports the future of the construction industry through its robust scholarship program and innovative projects by offering undergraduate and graduate-level scholarships to students enrolled in ABET- or ACCE-accredited construction management or construction-related engineering programs.
