In 2017, not only will BIAW continue to distribute (at least) $10,000 in funding for students pursuing a degree in the construction industry, but also, NEW THIS YEAR is an additional $10,000 for scholarships designated specifically for Technical and Trades students! It is exciting to say that BIAW will be distributing at least $20,000 to students in 2017.
Since the scholarship’s inception in 2001, Education Committee volunteers and BIAW staff have devoted countless hours to award scholarships and credit those students pursuing careers in construction-related fields. BIAW continues to recognize that training and education is at the core of our industry, and the scholarship program supports students that have selected home building as their life’s work. Over the years, in conjunction with our 14 local home builders associations, we have found numerous worthy students who have shown a drive and commitment to be part of our industry.
The 2017-18 BIAW Scholarship applications has been recently distributed to over 300 schools and colleges in Washington State as well as to past scholarship applicants and by special requests. Please help spread the word. If you know of a student in Washington State who is pursuing training in the trades or is currently college-enrolled, or will be enrolled in 2017 and working towards a degree within the building industry, please pass along our BIAW Scholarship Program application available at BIAW’s website at www.biaw.com.
We are excited to once again extend this exciting opportunity to students in the building industry.
