The construction industry is the nation’s largest single industry employing more people and contributing more money to America’s bottom line than any other single industry. And with the need for new schools, hospitals, housing and other commercial buildings only going up, the industry is going to need more and more quality workers to get all of the work done.
It’s never been easier to receive quality construction education in Wisconsin. Wisconsin’s universities, technical colleges and apprenticeship programs offer a variety of programs and all types of curriculum. Click here for a full list of institutions in Wisconsin that offer construction education.
The AGC of Wisconsin has multiple scholarships available to Wisconsin students interested in construction careers. Our renewable scholarships are worth $2,500 per year for each year of undergraduate study, up to a maximum of $7,500.
Each year 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.
Over $10 million in scholarships have been awarded to more than 4,000 students attending colleges and universities across the country. Through endowments made by AGC members and supporters, as well as AGC Chapters, the Education and Research Foundation awards over 100 scholarships each year to students dedicated to pursuing a career in the construction industry.
