books and tabletOne way to attract more students into home building careers is to help make it easier for them to get construction management degrees.

The National Housing Endowment, NAHB’s philanthropic arm, administers a number of scholarship opportunities that do just that. And two of them have deadlines that are just around the corner:

The Herman J Smith Scholarship was created to honor the  NAHB leader and Texas builder’s lifelong commitment to the housing industry and the education of future generations of home builders. Preference is given to Texas state residents. The application deadline is Friday, March 25.

The NAHB Professional Women in Building Strategies for Success scholarship is another example of PWB’s longstanding commitment to workforce development and learning, as members raise money for the scholarship throughout the year. The money is intended to help students to further their education in housing industry-related programs. The deadline for this scholarship application is also March 25.

Home builders, remodelers and their trade partners are encouraged to spread the word about these and other scholarship opportunities. And it wouldn’t hurt to part with a few bucks to make the funds grow either. You can donate to the National Housing Endowment by completing this simple, secure form.
