Scholarships Now Available To Students and Professionals

Staff | September 28, 2010

Applications are now available at the website for students and construction-industry professionals seeking education scholarships.

A workforce development initiative promoting construction as a rewarding career choice, is a joint effort of the Associated Equipment Distributors Foundation (AEDF), the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), and the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). The website is a major component of the associations' efforts to attract students and workers to an industry facing serious shortages of skilled tradespeople and technicians. Students, teachers, counselors and parents are able to access an online resource to explore benefits and opportunities for careers in construction.

The deadline to apply for the scholarships is Feb. 4. Application details and entry forms are available at

Scholarship funds are to be used for higher-education tuition or the purchase of tools to improve worker productivity.
