Bellows establishes COSC scholarship


Houston’s W.S. Bellows Construction Corporation has endowed the new W.S. Bellows Construction Corporation Scholarship, available for students in the Texas A&M College of Architecture’s Department of Construction Science; preference for scholarship awards will be given to female COSC students.

“Our owner, Tom Bellows, passed away last October, and his wife, Laura, has now assumed ownership,” said Jim Stevenson, W.S. Bellows Chief Executive Officer. “Since we’re a woman-owned business, and also because the number of women in the industry has been growing,” he said, the scholarship has an emphasis on female students.

Bellows, founded in 1914, has built some of Houston’s most noteworthy structures such as the San Jacinto Monument (1939) and the Wortham Theater Center (1987); Bellows also built the University of Texas tower (1937).

Stevenson applauds the education students receive through the Department of Construction Science.

“What I have found is when you get a student that’s been through this program they can come in and be beneficial to the company much more quickly than similar programs,” he said. “I think it’s just a great program that gives a good background to our industry and is focused on commercial, while some of the other programs aren’t as much.”
