The Contractors Association of Will and Grundy Counties’ Scholarship chairwoman Becky Fallin, who also is president of RHL Insulation and Firestopping Inc., recently announced the opening of the Annual Contractors Association of Will and Grundy Counties Scholarship Program.

The association began in 1996, and since has been awarded more than $100,000 to scholars pursuing degrees in the construction field.  

Applicants must be the son/daughter of an owner, or be a son/daughter of a full-time employee of a CAWGC member company, or be a son/daughter of a Will/Grundy union building tradesman. Applicants also must be planning to attend college full time in fall 2017 or presently be a full-time college student pursuing an undergraduate degree. 

A construction-related major and a grade average of “C” or better also is required. The application deadline is April 14. An interview will be required for all first-time finalists. Recipients will be announced early in May.    

Scholarship requirements and the application are available on the association’s website at www.CAWGC.org.
