Fehr Graham’s engineering and environmental scholarships for high school seniors

Fehr Graham scholarship

Fehr Graham has led the development of engineering and environmental solutions in Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin since 1973. To celebrate our 50th anniversary, in 2023 we proudly announced the Fehr Graham Scholarship to mark our commitment to inspiring the next generation of leaders in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM.

Our success story is built on the hard work and expertise of our dedicated team, and this program is an effort to give back to the professions that serve as the backbone of our industry.
