The college scholarship applicant must be a member of their senior class in high school or currently enrolled in an undergraduate full-time college program (or the equivalent of 12 or more credit hours). The industry-related scholarship applicant must be employed by a PHCC-National Association member contractor and attending an educational facility/school accredited by the Department of Labor in his/her state.

Education Expense Grants

The PHCC-National Auxiliary offers continuing education grants to PHCC-National Association contractors and their employees/co-workers. This fairly new and expanded program awards grants for attendance to PHCC Enhanced Service Group programs, as well as the PHCC national conventions. Grants cover registration, airfare, and lodging to attend one industry-related seminar, conference, or course of up to a total of $1,000 per year. Applicants may apply for grants to attend or participate in these programs with each group: Quality Service Contractors (QSC), Construction Contractors' Alliance (CCA), PHCC National Convention, or PHCC Educational Foundation's Project Management Course.
