The Asphalt Pavement Association of Indiana (APAI) has named Jason Buechlein (BSCEM '19) and Alexander Mahan (BSCEM '19) 2017 APAI Scholars. The two CEM juniors were awarded with scholarships at the APAI Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Scholarship Awards Banquet on Dec. 14, 2017. Buechlein and Mahan received $1,000 and $2,000, respectively.

Scholarships are awarded by the APAI Scholarship Committee to students studying construction management, civil engineering, and construction engineering and management at five nationally accredited Indiana universities, including Purdue University. Students must complete an in-person interview with members of the Scholarship Committee to receive an award. The total amount of scholarships awarded annually by the association in recent years has been between $35-40,000 to deserving young men and women who are United States citizens, in anticipation that many recipients will remain in Indiana and seek employment opportunities with APAI's member contractors.
