Our mission is to "Enhance the Success of Women in Construction," but let us take this one step further. We also want to encourage women and men to consider the pursuit of a career in construction or move to the next level in the industry. To support this endeavor, we offer scholarships once a year whether you are attending college or trade school.
Undergraduate Scholarship Eligibility:
The NAWIC Founders’ Scholarship Foundation (NFSF) was established in 1963 by NAWIC to assist in providing the construction industry with trained employees through higher education. Construction is the only industry that encompasses almost every professional discipline. Literally every career sector is available to you: trades, project management, administrative, legal, financial, insurance, business owner…the list is virtually endless. Once someone decides on a career in construction, they then have to find ways to pay for their education. The NAWIC Founders Scholarship Foundation (NFSF) is here to help.
Each year we are pleased to award over $25,000 to worthy recipients in construction-related programs. Award amounts range from $500 to $2,500. Some local chapters award scholarships as well. Please contact the National NAWIC Office to find a chapter near you: 800-552-3506. For questions on eligibility please see below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NFSF is a self-supporting scholarship program and is a 509(a)(3) designated organization so contributions are tax deductible as a charitable donation. We have the capability to administer scholarships to college or trade school students for your company or local NAWIC chapter.
