Students in Lander University’s dual engineering degree program will benefit from a scholarship established by the Lakelands Home Builders Association. Nick Nicholson, executive officer of the Association, said the scholarship is designed to provide financial help to students who would support the construction industry in South Carolina after graduation.

Lander’s College of Science and Mathematics and Clemson University’s College of Engineering and Science offer a dual engineering degree. To earn the degree, students complete three years at Lander, where they major in mathematics or computer information systems, followed by two years at Clemson in an engineering field of their choice.

To be eligible for the Home Builder’s scholarship, which becomes available this fall, applicants must be residents of Abbeville, Greenwood, McCormick or Saluda counties and meet established academic requirements.

Nicholson said his organization has developed a great partnership with Lander, which he described as a significant part of the community.

Dr. David Slimmer, dean of the College of Science and Mathematics, said the scholarship is a big plus for the dual degree program and local students who might not have an opportunity to complete an engineering degree without the financial assistance provided by the Home Builder’s Association.
