|Fluor Foundation, in conjunction with the Army Scholarship Foundation, has established a scholarship to assist family members of United States Army personnel in their pursuit of higher education.
This scholarship, designated as the Fluor Honorary Scholarship, will be awarded annually to a deserving son or daughter of a U.S. Army soldier or to the spouse of a serving active duty enlisted soldier. This scholarship was created as a result of Fluor Foundation's donation to the Army Scholarship Foundation.

"This scholarship represents one small way Fluor can thank our soldiers and their families for the hardships they endure regularly."
