Ferris State University
William J. Pulte recognized during his lifetime the importance of a skilled and responsive workforce to assure quality and value in home construction today. The Foundation established the William J. Pulte Construction Practices Lab and the William J. Pulte Construction Scholarship to help ensure Ferris State can continue developing leaders in the construction industry.
In 2019, the Foundation provided FSU with a $1 million donation. The donation was used to establish the William J. Pulte Construction Scholarship in FSU’s School of Built Environment. The donation also supports FSU’s Construction Management Experiential and Technical Learning Endowment, the Construction Technology and Management program in FSU’s College of Engineering Technology and the William J. Pulte Construction Practices Lab in the Granger Center for Construction and HVACR (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration). In addition, the Pulte Scholarship Program provides for one endowed and one renewable full-ride scholarship for sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
