RE: C.I.C. SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
DATE: January 11, 2019
The Construction Industry Center Board of Directors established a
scholarship program in an effort to encourage and assist young people in our
communities. This year, again, the program is open to include all eligible
students, regardless of their field of study.
The scholarships will be specifically for children of C.I.C. member firms
and their employees.
Up to eleven (11) awards, five (5) industry related and five (5) outside
industry, of $500.00 each may be given to individuals who meet ALL
eligibility requirements as listed on the application. Additionally, one (1)
individual (from all candidates) who is deemed as submitting the best essay
(see application for details) will receive an additional $500.00 for a total of
$1,000.00 scholarship. The deadline for receipt of applications is March 31,
2019. A committee will review the scholarship applications and select the
recipients. Winners will be notified by May 1 and scholarships will be
redeemable after August 1 by providing C.I.C. with school registration
confirmation.
We hope we can count on your support to help us disseminate this
information to ALL your employees. Posting the notice in a conspicuous
place, providing copies as a payroll stuffer or an announcement at employee
meetings are a few ideas for getting the word out!
We're excited about being a partner in educating and training our future
workforce!
Thank you
