Ivy Tech Community College’s Fort Wayne Campus and Brooks Construction Co., Inc. have partnered to offer a limited number of scholarships for four Heavy Highway classes to Ivy Tech students. Once students complete the classes and an internship, they will be eligible to work for Brooks on jobs such as paving, earthwork, and bridge building.
In order to be eligible for these classes, students must have completed BCTI 100—Intro to Construction Technology. They can take the class during the first eight weeks of the fall semester and begin their heavy highway classes for the second eight weeks. Students are responsible for paying for the intro class, and Brooks will pay for the remaining four classes and internship.
The introduction class is not eligible for financial aid unless the student is enrolled in Ivy Tech’s Building Construction Technology program; Heavy Highway is a courses-only program, which means it does not conclude with a certificate or degree.
Those interested in applying for the Brooks scholarship can contact Ryan Voorhees, Building Construction Technology program chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 260-480-4114.
