B&W Scholarship Fund

The Baxter & Woodman Civil Engineering Scholarship was created in 2020 to honor firm founders Lorrin Woodman and Richard Baxter. Together they established a legacy of client service, engineering practices that protect public health and safety, and giving back to the community. These forward-thinking entrepreneurs launched a company that now, more than 75 years later, employs 300+ people located in multiple states who are dedicated to continuing their story and service.

The Baxter & Woodman Civil Engineering Scholarship awards $1,000 as support and encouragement to outstanding students pursuing a civil engineering degree at a four-year college or university. This is offered within all regions of the firm.

In 2022 we distributed scholarships to six students.

The application period for the 2023 scholarship has closed, but please check back in early 2024 for future opportunities.

Jonathan Kolweier

This scholarship has supported my goal to not just graduate, but excel with my degree in civil engineering. College is expensive so any financial aid allows me the peace of mind to focus on my studies. B&W’s commitment to supporting their interns is one of the reasons I accepted their offer of full-time employment!

Jonathan began interning with B&W in summer 2020, received the B&W Scholarship, and joined the firm full-time in 2022.
