The charitable arm (501c3) of the Builders Association of Northern New Jersey (BANNJ) offers educational and technical training scholarships each year. These funds are available to Bergen, Hudson, Passaic and Sussex County residents intending to pursue a career associated with the home building/remodeling industry including but not limited to engineering, architecture, landscape architecture, construction management, interior design, etc. These awards are funded through the generosity of BANNJ members and other interested parties. The Association is responding to the industry’s dire need for skilled craftsmen and craftswomen.
In all cases, candidates must be full-time or part-time students who will attend accredited institutions with the intent of pursuing a construction-related degree or certification.
Scholarships will be awarded in the form of tuition paid directly to the institution. The selection process, conducted by the Scholarship Funds Committee, will be based on the following criteria: (1) the student’s desire to enter the building/remodeling industry as a career, (2) the student’s academic ability/potential and (3) the student’s financial need.
For more information and to obtain scholarship applications, please contact Kathleen M. Kurpiel, Executive Vice President, BANNJ at (201) 843-6868 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
