This scholarship was established as a tribute to David and Vera Soloff in recognition of their contributions to the success of The Soloff Companies. This scholarship is in further recognition of the College of Engineering, Tennessee Technological University, and its contributions to the construction industry by providing knowledgeable and competent engineers.
