Building Science Partners with the Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress

The Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress has announced an educational partnership with the McWhorter School of Building Science in the College of Architecture, Design and Construction. The McWhorter School of Building Science is one of three construction management schools in the U.S. that have agreed to work together with Alliance to incorporate more roofing-specific curriculum into their construction management undergraduate degree programs; provide scholarships to students and faculty; and develop internship programs with roofing contracting companies, manufacturers and distributors. Scholarships and internships will be available for the 2014-15 academic year, and at least one student at each school will receive one $5,000 scholarship. In addition, scholarships will be offered to faculty members for work related to the partnership, and up to eight internships are planned for the summer of 2014. Colorado State University and the University of Florida are the other partner schools.
