‘Strategies for Success’ Applications Due March 14
The NAHB Women’s Council and the National Housing Endowment, the philanthropic arm of NAHB, are offering “Strategies for Success” scholarships for full-time students pursuing building-related courses of study for the 2009/2010 academic year. Applications are due March 14.
The “Strategies for Success” Scholarship Fund encourages students to further their education in such industry-related fields as construction management, construction technology, civil engineering, architecture, design or any of the trade specialties at the college or university they are attending.
Preference is given to women students with financial needs and those who are active NAHB Student Chapter members at their university or college.
Applicants interested in applying for the scholarship funds must be registered as a full-time student this coming fall and either be a senior in high school planning to enroll in a two- or four-year college or university/vocational program following graduation, or have at least one full academic year of course work remaining after the scholarship is received at a two- or four-year college or university/vocational program.
The scholarship can be used for tuition, fees and/or books.
Scholarship applications can be downloaded from the “Strategies for Success” scholarship page of the National Housing Endowment Web site, www.nationalhousingendowment.org. Applications are available in Word and PDF formats.
The “Strategies for Success” scholarships were established in 2001 by Deborah Ferland, past national president of the NAHB Women’s Council, and Austin Ferland. To date, more than $8,000 has been awarded.
The endowment administers 12 scholarship programs and awards more than $300,000 each year to students pursuing careers in residential construction and related fields.
