Ten students pursuing craft professional training in the construction industry were awarded the second annual Build Your Future scholarships through ABC’s Trimmer Construction Education Foundation (TCEF). The scholarships are given to the top 10 students attending an NCCER-accredited program or a state/federally approved apprenticeship program in a merit-shop training facility. 

According to the TCEF Chair Tony Stagliano, “The entire group of up-and-coming craft professionals who applied for BYF scholarships this year was impressive. They already show dedication to the construction industry and excitement about learning their craft, which is exactly what our industry needs at this time.” The NCCER sponsors 10, $2,000 BYF scholarships each year.
