With the February 15 deadline just a few weeks away, now is the time for all PCCA members to make sure their employees have all the information about PCCA scholarships.
The scholarships are open to the children and other dependents of PCCA members' employees. Each scholarship is worth up to $10,000, and up to four scholarships are awarded every year.
PCCA will also be awarding a $1,000 scholarship to a student at each technical school/community college participating in PCCA's Who Will Do the Work? program. These applicants do not need to be affiliated with a PCCA member.
To be considered for scholarships for the 2022-2023 school year, your application must be received by February 15, 2022.
Go to www.pccaerf.org/scholarships/instructions to apply.
We encourage all of you to pass along this information to your employees and their children. Please provide this information to your HR departments and use the PCCA scholarship program as a benefit to their employees.
Student applicants must be dependents of full or regular part-time employees of a PCCA member company (contractor or associate) who has at least one year of continuous service with that company on January 1 of that academic year. The employee must continue to be employed by a PCCA member's company to maintain scholarship eligibility.
Applicants can be high school seniors graduating that academic year, current undergraduate college students, and students not currently enrolled in college between the ages of 18 and 24.
The student selected to receive an award must have had a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (based on a 4.0 scale) during his/her high school or college years. SAT and/or ACT test scores will also be considered. Consideration will be weighted toward students following a course of study that is directly related to the construction industry.
The student selected for the award must follow a full-time college course of study or major in a four-year college or university, two-year junior or community college, or vocational-technical school. The student must complete a minimum of twelve credit hours each grading period.
PCCA will announce the scholarship winners at the 2022 PCCA Convention, March 4-9 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Again, the deadline for applications is February 15, 2022. More information is available at www.pccaerf.org.
