The purpose of the NAWIC Founders’ Scholarship Foundation (NFSF) is to award scholarships to undergraduate students seeking careers in construction-related fields and to students enrolled in programs specializing in trade-related careers.

Applications are available through the NAWIC website with a due date of February 28, Students submit the application electronically. The Trustees, Pat McDonald, Deb Gregoire, Judy DeWeese and Robin Fulton-Meyer, will meet early Spring 2014 to review applications and award scholarships.
Because the Foundation is recognized as a 509(a)(3) entity, all donations to the Foundation may be deducted as a charitable contribution. Additionally, NAWIC members, and children and spouses of NAWIC members are eligible to receive scholarships through the Foundation, if they meet the criteria.
If your Chapter currently awards scholarships, please consider allowing the Foundation to administer them for you. Donations to the Foundation are welcomed and encouraged to ensure the future of our construction industry. If you have any questions, please contact Robin Fulton-Meyer, Administrator, or any of the other Trustees.
