Since 2004, the Home Builders Foundation (HBF) has been awarding scholarships to high school and college students pursuing a career within the home building industry. To date, more than $150,000 has been awarded to students in our community all in an effort to increase opportunity, exposure and success in our building trades. This year, the Home Builders Foundation is excited to announce that we have partnered with Oregon Student Access Commission for our 2013 scholarship program.
OSAC’s mission is to create a college-going culture for all Oregonians by providing access through information, mentoring, and financial support. By partnering with OSAC, our scholarship applicants will have online access to HBF scholarships plus 450 other scholarship opportunities! The HBF Workforce Development Scholarship Committee will still select the scholarship winners, but OSAC will be administering the programs.
The Home Builders Foundation has four scholarships funds available: the Gary E. Milgard High School Scholarship- with priority given to graduates of the ACE Mentoring Program, the Jim Irvine Statewide Scholarship Fund, Cobalt Excellence Award and the Professional Remodelers Organization Award. Scholarship criteria and online application can be found at http://oregonstudentaid.gov/.
