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. We’re pleased to report that from 1973 to 2018 the Boston Chapter has awarded 147 scholarships totaling $166,700 to worthy recipients in construction related programs.
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, 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. Applications are due back to the Scholarship Committee Chairperson annually, in March. The committee will decide, based on the number of qualified applicants how much to award each recipient. Typically the recipients and their guest are invited to our June business / dinner meeting for the presentation of scholarships.
