Want to be involved with this year's golf tournament to help raise funds for next year's scholarship applicants
The Greater Kansas City, Missouri Scholarship Foundation was founded in 1986. The purpose of the corporation is to promote and enhance the construction industry through granting of scholarship assistance to men and women pursuing academic studies in the construction-related fields. Over the last 27 years through both the NAWIC Chapter and the Foundation we have awarded more than $190,000 in scholarships. The Scholarship Foundation's main source of fundraising coincides with the Chapters' annual golf tournament. Our Scholarship Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt classification from the IRS and all contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible.
Applications are distributed to schools known to have courses of study that will qualify a scholarship recipient to become actively engaged in some phase of the construction industry. (Both trade schools and degreed programs will be considered.) Equal consideration is given to all applicants without regard to race, color, sex, religion, handicap, age or national origin.
How much money is available?
Scholarship awards typically range between $500 and $2,000 each. The number of awards is based on the amount of funds raised in the previous year.
How do you apply?
You can download the Greater Kansas City Missouri Scholarship Foundation Application at the right. If you prefer to have an application mailed to you, please send an e-mail with your contact information to the Scholarship Foundation mail to:brookes@ACSContracting.net. There is no application fee.
What is the deadline to enter?
All scholarship applications must be postmarked by March 31, 2013 to be considered.
