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.
Winning the NAWIC Scholarship last year was a breakthrough for me. I don’t know how I would of been able to start the school year without NAWIC Austin!
