ACE Scholarship Program

Since 1996, the ACE Mentor Program of Greater New York has awarded scholarships to college bound seniors who participate in the ACE program and meet specific criteria.   The ultimate goal of the program is to support students who intend to pursue careers in the design and construction industry.

In 2018, ACE Greater NY awarded $200,000 in scholarships sponsored by mentoring firms and other ACE supporters to 62 seniors. ACE students are also considered for scholarships from other sources, including a special scholarship available to ACE Mentor Students who have applied to Manhattan College.
