The NAWIC Founders' Scholarship Foundation is an equal opportunity organization, and encourages applications from all individuals. The Foundation is recognized by the IRS as a 509(a)(3) Corporation, so all donations are deductible as charitable contributions.

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 to move to the next level in the industry.  To support this endeavor, we offer scholarships once a year whether you are attending College or a Trade School.
