2019 Scholarship Application
For our 2017 Scholarships we had many applicants from Rochester and surrounding cities. The following three students each received scholarships:
We offer these scholarships each year to graduating high school students going forth into the construction industry with a GPA of 2.5 or better.
Another way students are exposed to the building trades is to have two of our members as guests in their classroom. A builder and an associate member bring information as well as a video to be able to communicate with the students about the many careers available in the construction industry.
If you would like to have us come to your school, please contact John at the Office (507) 282-7698 or john@RochesterAreaBuilders.com
Previously, Rochester Area Builders coordinated a Friday morning in May for area high school students to shadow a building industry professional. We now do the coordination on an individual basis.
Please contact contact John at the Office (507) 282-7698 or john@RochesterAreaBuilders.com if you are interested in participating either as a professional or a student.
