Details for the 2020-21 Melvin Kruger Endowed Scholarship Program are available. We want to encourage NRCA contractor and supplier members to share this scholarship information with their employees—there are two scholarship categories available for your employees, their spouses and their dependent children.
The Accredited Post-Secondary Institution Scholarship. This $5,000 scholarship category is for individuals planning to attend post-secondary colleges and universities and seeking careers in the roofing or building construction industries—which includes architecture; civil, mechanical or structural engineering; construction management or occupational health and safety majors.
The new Reid and DeaNa Ribble/Career Technical Education Scholarship. Students who are pursuing an education at a vocational or technical trade school are eligible to apply. This $1,000 scholarship is designed to help students who are seeking a professional career inside the roofing industry, including but not limited to those seeking to be roofing and sheet metal installers/fabricators, crane and equipment operators, foremen and superintendents, warehouse and inventory specialists and other roofing trade specialties. This scholarship is not designed for careers that require a four-year undergraduate degree.
The application process is online this year. The deadline for both scholarship categories is 3 p.m. CST Jan. 30, 2020.
