The AGC Education and Research Foundation offers Workforce Development Scholarships to students enrolled in accredited technical schools or craft training programs in any discipline of construction.
As the U.S. economy shifts from manufacturing to knowledge-based, there has been a corresponding shift in interest in establishing educational programs designed to prepare students for college. The consequence has been the overwhelming impression among youths, their parents, and teachers that a career and technical education is unacceptable, despite the fact construction jobs often pay better than many post-college options, especially post-downturn.
This scholarship was started thanks to a generous donation from NCCER and its Build our Future initiative.
