Peter Kiewit Foundation Engineering Academy

The Peter Kiewit Foundation Engineering Academy seeks to recruit and retain students committed to supporting and advancing women in engineering in the state of Nebraska, providing students who have financial need with the resources and support to pursue careers in engineering, computing and construction.

This program grounds its work in The Complete Engineer®, ensuring students participate in experiential learning in tandem with the technical expertise provided by a Big Ten degree. Through a cohort-based program of 40 scholars each year, these students will be empowered to make a positive impact in their field through exclusive seminar courses, dedicated success coaching, and support of a faculty fellows network.

Beyond developing students individually, The Peter Kiewit Foundation Engineering Academy will foster an environment in the engineering community at large to increase gender diversity in the workforce and a sense of belonging for women in engineering, computing and construction.
