Eleanor K. Buckley Memorial Scholarship

Each year our chapter awards the Eleanor K. Buckley Scholarship through NFSF.  The NAWIC Founders’ Scholarship Foundation (NFSF) was established in 1963 by NAWIC to assist in providing the construction industry with trained employees through higher education.   NFSF is a self-supporting 509(a)(3) designated scholarship program that allows all contributions to be tax deductible. 

Construction is the only industry that encompasses almost every professional discipline.  Literally every career sector is available to you:  trades, project management, administrative, legal, financial, insurance, business owner…the list is virtually endless.  Once someone decides on a career in construction, they then have to find ways to pay for their education.  The NAWIC Founders Scholarship Foundation (NFSF) is here to help.

Each year NFSF AWARDS OVER $25,000 to worthy recipients in construction-related programs. Award amounts range from $500 to $2,500.
