The Connecticut Building Congress Scholarship Fund offers scholarships to graduating Connecticut high school students entering college-level programs in architecture, construction-related engineering, construction management, surveying, planning or other courses of study leading to associate, baccalaureate, or masters degrees in the construction field.
The awards will be given for academic merit, extracurricular activities, potential and financial need. The scholarships may be renewable each year based on performance in school and available resources. The number of awards, as well as the amounts may vary at the discretion of the CBCSF Board of Directors. In the past, scholarships have ranged from $500 to $2,000 per year.
Applications are only accepted from Connecticut residents who will be studying construction industry-related subjects in college.
