NAWIC Scholarships

In additional to the national scholarship fund offered by NFSF, Austin NAWIC is proud to offer local scholarship opportunities to students pursuing a career in construction.

NAWIC Scholarships is offering a total of 5 scholarships for the 2020-2021 Academic year
and 6 scholarships for Trade programs to be awarded for 2020

  • Once again I want to express my gratitude to the National Association of Women In
    Construction for the scholarship I was awarded. I had been going through
    personal challenges both emotionally and financially, and I was able to focus
    more on school, and developing my skills in the electrical field.

    A woman’s place is exactly where she wants to be. We have the capability
    of achieving our goals as hard as they may be.

    With a positive attitude, tools in hand, hard work and discipline I try to make
    a difference every day.

    I truly love my job!

  • Receiving the NAWIC scholarship has been such a big help. The financial help gave me the opportunity to pursue higher education. I am about to enter my senior year at Texas State University and it wouldn’t have been possible without this support.

  • Receiving the 2020 National Association of Women in Construction Austin Chapter scholarship means that I will be able to focus on what truly matters. This scholarship took the weight of paying for college off my chest, and will allow me to focus on being involved with Iowa State. I will be able to focus on doing well in my schoolwork instead of worrying about tuition. I will be able to go on service trips during the fall and spring break instead of working. I will be able to volunteer more with Iowa State’s Habitat for Humanity chapter. I will be able to be more involved with our Associated General Contractors chapter. 


    In short, this scholarship will help me grow as a student, construction engineer, and community leader.

  • Scholarships such as this one empower me to continue my education without having to worry about how I will be able to finance it. As the oldest of five children, aspiring for higher education would not be possible for me if it wasn’t for financial aid, so thank you!

  • The NAWIC Austin Chapter Scholarship will allow me to further my knowledge in the construction industry and help me focus on my education. Especially during these trying times, it is relieving not to have to worry as much about the financial side of college and be better able to put my energy into learning. I am grateful people are still committed to providing financial aid to students to better our world even during the crisis in which we find ourselves.
