National Diversity Scholarship Opportunity

The fifth annual National Diversity Scholarship is currently accepting applications for the 2025 awards. The JE Dunn National Diversity Scholarship program provides recipients with a $5,000 scholarship paid over the course of two years and includes up to two guaranteed internship opportunities. Since 2020, the scholarship has been awarded to 33 students, and both leaders and students have realized tremendous value from the program.

“All three of our business units in our Advanced Facilities Group, where we work for some of the largest companies in the world, are growing, and our clients expect that we bring performance and diverse thought and approaches to their projects. By providing scholarships to a diverse group of individuals that may be part of JE Dunn in the future, we are helping to ensure our ability to deliver on those expectations and guarantee our continued growth and success. Our clients expect the best of JE Dunn, and we will continue to recruit, hire, train, and prepare our team to deliver beyond their expectations.”

— Paul Neidlein, President, Advanced Facilities Group

“I am incredibly honored and excited to begin my journey with JE Dunn, not only as an intern, but as a National Diversity Scholarship award recipient. I am a DACA recipient who doesn’t receive the same opportunities as others. Therefore, I am grateful to be appreciated by a company that values diversity and inclusion. It feels good to be seen after everything I have been through!”

— Alejandra Gomez, Project Management Intern
