The Catawba Valley Chapter of Professional Construction Estimators of America (PCEA) will award scholarship money this year to deserving high school seniors and college undergraduates, who are dependents of Catawba Valley Chapter members.
At least one scholarship, usually in the amount of one-thousand-dollars, has been awarded each year. However, the chapter will award scholarship money only if a deserving application is received. In choosing recipients, the selection committee considers community service, field of study, academic performance, financial need, extracurricular activities, letters of recommendation and character references.
Completed applications should be mailed to the PCEA before the end of April. Applications will be reviewed and recipients selected by an independent judging panel, not associated with PCEA. The scholarship committee will announce recipients by the end of May.
* Dependents of members of PCEA of Catawba Valley may apply for the Chapter Dependent Scholarship, but are not eligible for the Kenneth N. Houston Memorial Scholarship.
If you have questions or would like to obtain information about PCEA’s Dependent Scholarship, contact Randall Williams.

ORDER OF THE ISOSCELES
Was conceived by the Trustees in 1989 to generate income by the enrollment fee, which goes directly to the Foundation, thus helping the PCEA fulfill its obligation to future generations. Membership in the Order of the Isosceles is accompanied by a one-time $500 assessment, which is tax deductible. Individuals may enroll themselves, companies may give someone a membership as a tribute to hard work and dedication. Chapters can enroll persons they wish to recognize for service, and families can present an enrollment to a member as a special gift. Fellows in the Order of the Isosceles are bearers of opportunity for future construction leaders - they do not have to be a member of the PCEA.
