YORKTOWN, N.Y. – Yorktown resident Julia Maria Apostolou, a freshman student studying engineering at the University of Delaware, has received a $5,000 grant from the Louis G. Nappi Construction Labor-Management Scholarship Fund for undergraduate studies in mathematics, the sciences, engineering and technology.

The scholarship, a major construction industry financial-aid program, was established in 2009 by Louis G. Nappi (1920-2014), a former chairman emeritus of the Construction Industry Council of Westchester & Hudson Valley, Inc. It was his vision that the hard sciences of math and engineering were keys to re-establishing the U.S. as a world leader in transportation and infrastructure construction.

Comprising representatives from both labor and management, the Louis G. Nappi Scholarship Committee selects candidates who exemplify the high scholastic and personal standards needed to advance in the construction and building industries.
