MCRBA Scholarship Fund


The Mobile County Road Builders Association Scholarship Fund was established in 1968 to promote excellence in the transportation construction industry in Mobile County. In 2015 the association was able to make this an endowed scholarship with the help of the Mitchell/Moulton Scholarship Initiative which matched our scholarship dollar for dollar. The Fund awards an annual scholarship in the amount of $3,000.00 to the “Outstanding Civil Engineering Student” at the University of South Alabama.
Students eligible to apply for the scholarship must:
· Be entering their senior year of engineering at the University of South Alabama
· have their primary residence in Mobile County, or if one is not available, in Baldwin County; must plan to return to Southwest Alabama to work after finishing school.
The University is given the authority to choose the student with the best overall grade-point average that can meet the above criteria.
