The Wisconsin Builders Foundation is again accepting applications for its scholarship program after a successful response in 2017 when 5 scholarships were awarded. These scholarships are available for students who are residents of and enrolled in or plan to attend a Wisconsin institution of higher learning in the building trades. Up to $1000 per recipient is awarded.

The WB Foundation also has a matching grant scholarship program, which will match the scholarship award given by a local association for up to $1000 per recipient.

The application period opened February 1st and will close on June 15th. More information on the scholarship programs and downloadable applications are available at wisbuild.org/wb-foundation. Applications can either be emailed to Joan Olson at jolson@wisbuild.org or sent by mail: Wisconsin Builders Association / Attn: Joan Olson / 660 John Nolen Dr Ste 320 / Madison, WI 53713.

The WB Foundation is committed to alleviating the labor shortage and bringing qualified students into the workforce. If you’re interested in donating to this initiative, please visit wisbuild.org/wb-foundation.
