Endowment Offers Student Grants to Attend IBS
The National Housing Endowment, NAHB Past Presidents Council and the Home Builders Institute, the workforce arm of NAHB, are offering grants to NAHB Student Chapter members to attend the upcoming International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Orlando, Fla.
The NAHB Past Presidents/National Housing Endowment Matching Funds Program will provide the grants to the students through their state and local home builders associations (HBAs). Attending the builders’ show has proven to be instrumental in helping students learn outside the classroom and prepare for careers in the home building industry.
Applications currently are being mailed to all NAHB Student Chapters and HBA executive officers. They will also be available online at the Home Builders Institute’s Web site, www.hbi.org.
Applications must be returned to the Home Builders Institute by Friday, Oct. 28.
For more information, e-mail Page Browning at HBI, or call her 800-368-5242 x8918.
