Alliant Insurance Services announces its continued financial support of The AGC Education and Research Foundation. Alliant’s pledge of $100,000 will fund undergraduate and graduate-level scholarships for students enrolled in ABET or ACCE accredited construction management or construction-related engineering programs.
“We are dedicated to inspiring students of all backgrounds to pursue an education in engineering and construction management,” said Michael Cusack, Managing Director and Co-COO, Alliant Specialty. “Alliant’s commitment to the construction industry is unmatched in the broker community, and we are proud to be a catalyst that supports the education of the next generation of leaders in the industry.”
The private, direct scholarship is designed to make a significant difference for students planning a career in the construction industry and can be awarded at any stage of a student’s education journey. Applicants for the scholarship are required to complete an online application and participate in an interview with a local AGC contractor.
Alliant’s industry support also includes involvement in the ACE (Architecture Construction Engineering) Mentor Program, where Michael Cusack is an active board member. The ACE Mentor Program is an award-winning afterschool program designed to introduce high school students to rewarding careers in the architecture, construction and engineering industry, including skilled trades.
