Southern California Contractors Association recognizes winners with dinner
The cost of college today is expensive. Southern California Contractors Association is proud to have the opportunity to help our industry’s youth by granting educational financial scholarships to students who major in construction industry fields of study. On August 21, the association recognizes winners during the annual SCCA Scholarship Awards dinner.
About the scholarship
The purpose of the SCCA Scholarship Fund is to encourage and assist engineering- and construction-oriented students as they pursue education in those fields at accredited schools. SCCA’s goal is to grow the pool of work professionals and keep our industry moving forward. Awarding scholarships to college students who meet the criteria assists them in the process as they go to school and on to industry careers.
Funding that helps put this program in place is provided in part by the Construction Industry Advancement Fund (CIAF), the Fund for Construction Industry Advancement (FCIA), the Mobile Crane Operators Group (MCOG), and contributions made by our very own members.
