The AGC of America Education and Research Foundation offers Workforce Development Scholarships to students enrolled in accredited technical schools or craft training programs in any discipline of construction.
This is not the AGC scholarship for students in four-year degree programs. If you wish to apply for that scholarship, go to scholarship.agc.org when the application opens in July.
The Workforce Development scholarship is for students pursuing associate degrees, technical training or certificates to enter the construction industry. This scholarship is for $1,000 per year and can be renewed for up to two years.
This is a national scholarship program. Most of the AGC chapters offer scholarships to students in their areas as well. Check here to find an AGC chapter from your home state or in the state in which you attend school to see what they offer for this type of educational program.
Applications must be submitted by June 1, 2017 and are for the 2017–18 academic year. If you are selected as a finalist, you will be notified by July 2017. The next step is an interview with a contractor in your area. Following the interview, scholarship recipients will be selected and announced in August 2017. Students will receive their awards at the start of the September 2017 school year.
To apply, applications must be completed online. All applicants must sign-up for new login information before starting the application.
There are two very important things to remember:
- You must meet the criteria to apply.
- Be sure that your evaluator (either a teacher or an employer) knows that you are requesting a recommendation and log back in to your application to ensure the recommendation has been submitted. Your application is not complete until the evaluation has been completed AND YOU SUBMIT THE APPLICATION.
