The National Association of Women in Construction believes that it is their responsibility to enhance the success of women in the construction industry, to reach out to its members as well as the community to educate and to expose young people to exciting careers in construction.
Annually, scholarship applications are sent to local vocational high schools as well as colleges that offer construction related programs. Applicants must be pursuing an education and career in a construction related field. Programs may include architecture, construction management, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, trade schools, etc. We consider high school seniors and those already enrolled full time and we encourage those who have received awards in the past to reapply in future years.
The Board of Directors determines the amount of scholarship funds to be awarded and it is the committee’s job to review the applications and select the recipients. The committee will decide, based on the number of qualified applicants how much to award each recipient.
