CHANTILLY, Va. — The Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association (SMACNA) announced that its College of Fellows is accepting scholarship applications for the 2012-2013 academic year. SMACNA is encouraging applicants to complete and submit the application online. Applications must be submitted or postmarked no later than March 31, 2012.

College of Fellows scholarships are available to undergraduate students from SMACNA’s extended family, which includes SMACNA contractors, employees of SMACNA contractors, SMACNA Fellows, employees of SMACNA chapters, employees of SMACNA National, SMACNA National associate members, and members of the families of all of these groups.

SMACNA’s College of Fellows is administering 29 active scholarships.
