Utah PWB Scholarship and Grant Program
The Utah Chapter of Professional Women in Building (PWB) would like to offer you an opportunity to participate in the PWB “Women Building Utah” scholarship and grant program.
The Utah PWB is a non-profit organization focused on promoting, elevating, and supporting women in the building industry. Despite a growing awareness of the low percentage of women working in the construction industry, women are still significantly underrepresented in both residential and commercial construction. Women are very capable in this industry and can be very successful working as a trade professional, general contractor, designer, engineer, etc., and yet only represent approximately 3% of the construction industry nationwide. Our goal is to change the narrative and promote our cause by awarding scholarships and grants to women to help provide greater opportunities to participate and succeed in this field.
Present an essay of no more than 500 words or a video expressing your interest in entering the building industry, why you feel you should be awarded a scholarship, and how you would use or benefit from said scholarship.
Scholarships will be awarded in the amount of $1,000 and can be reapplied for every 6 months.
This is an open-deadline scholarship with applications reviewed quarterly.
DEADLINE: COMPLETED APPLICATIONS WILL BE REVIEWED QUARTERLY AND CAN BE REAPPLIED FOR EVERY 6 MONTHS
ELIGIBILITY: Applications are open to current Utah residents seeking further education and/or professional development in any field related to the building industry. Qualifying education and training programs may be for any industry-recognized university, college, trade school, or technical school offering industry-related courses or certifications.
Awards in the amount of $1,000 will be granted to the chosen scholarship recipients.
