Construction Scholarships Available for Tuition, Tools

Applications are now available for construction education scholarships funded by the ConstructMyFuture.com Web site, an industry initiative which promotes construction as a rewarding career choice. The ConstructMyFuture.com annual scholarship program is open to students and construction industry professionals, with the funds to be used for higher-education tuition or the purchase of tools to improve worker productivity. Deadline to apply is Feb. 4, 2008. Application details and entry forms are available online at www.constructmyfuture.com.

The workforce development initiative, ConstructMyFuture.com, is the joint effort of the Associated Equipment Distributors Foundation, the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, and the Associated General Contractors of America. The groups say the construction industry faces serious shortages of skilled trades people and technicians, and the Web site is a major component of their efforts to attract students and workers and upgrade the overall image of the construction industry.

ConstructMyFuture.com provides students, teachers, counselors and parents with an online resource to explore benefits and opportunities for careers in the construction industry. The site focuses on the three major segments of the construction industry: manufacturing, distributing, and constructing, and provides career descriptions as well as education and training options. Visitors can find information on additional industry scholarships, access to industry job boards, and a list of trade unions and professional associations that can be used to research apprenticeship and other career-building programs.

The site features a searchable database of more than 1,600 construction education programs in North America, with links to the school Web sites. ConstructMyFuture.com also offers a database of companies willing to provide field trips, speaking engagements and, student internships to enrich teacher lesson plans and student learning with real-world experience.
