GUAM — Leading environmental engineering and construction firm Brown and Caldwell recently awarded five, $1,000 scholarships to civil engineering and environmental science students at the University of Guam (UOG).
The scholarships mark the culmination of a five-year collaborative program between the university and the firm. In 2014, Brown and Caldwell pledged $25,000 in scholarships to UOG. Since the partnership commenced, a total of 24 college grants have been presented to promising students pursuing degrees in the sciences.
“The awardees are the top students in the civil engineering program, and they will be among the first to graduate from the program which officially started this semester.”

Since beginning work on the island in 1990, the firm has earned a reputation for its collaborative approach, proactive solutions, and supportive partnerships across the Pacific. Notable projects include environmental post-closure maintenance of Guam’s Ordot Closure Facility, providing technical guidance for numerous wastewater treatment plant upgrades, and managing diverse aging infrastructure and water quality improvement programs.
