National Housing Endowment - Lee S. Evans Scholarship (ID 1215)
- Start Date:
- Lee S. Evans and his wife Virginia established the Lee S. Evans/National Housing Endowment Scholarship in 1990. Evans, an educator and consultant, taught thousands of builders how to better manage their businesses. The Evans’ endowed gift to the National Housing Endowment, the philanthropic arm of the National Association of Home Builders, created the scholarship fund to assist in addressing the pressing need for educating and training construction managers in the residential building industry. Their vision to establish a permanent source of scholarship funding to assist promising students entering the field of residential construction management has helped students nationwide achieve their career goals.
