Award Deadline: Jun 1, 2024

The AGC Education and Research Foundation offers undergraduate and graduate-level scholarships to students enrolled in ABET or ACCE-accredited construction management or construction-related engineering programs.

The criteria to apply for undergraduate and graduate scholarships outline the eligibility to apply.

In 2015, the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and its Build Your Future initiative made a generous contribution to help fund the first Workforce Development scholarships for students pursuing craft and technical programs, allowing 19 applicants to receive the inaugural scholarships.  Scholarships are $1,000 per year, renewable for up to two years.

The 2024-2025 Workforce Development Scholarship is open! Apply by June 1, 2024.
