The Building Our Future Scholarship was established by the ABC MA Board of Directors to develop future talent for the construction industry. The Building Our Future Scholarship Fund has been approved by the IRS as a 501 (C) (3) not-for-profit organization.


The Building Our Future Scholarship was established by the Massachusetts Chapter of ABC to help develop the future talent of the construction industry by providing financial assistance to worthy candidates pursuing a post secondary education in construction.


Open to any student who meets one (or more) of the following criteria:

  • Accepted into or currently enrolled in a baccalaureate degree program in construction
  • Enrolled in a formal construction training program from a licensed provider
  • Registered in a state or federally approved apprenticeship program in the construction industry

At the discretion of the Board of Building Our Future Scholarship Fund, students pursuing other fields of post-secondary education related to construction may also be eligible.

Applicants should have at least one full year remaining in school subsequent to the scholarship application deadline.

Evaluation Criteria

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need, academic performance, extra-curricular activities, and employment experience. Preference is given to applicants from Massachusetts.

Recipients are announced in April and scholarships will be presented at the annual Safety and Training Dinner of ABC MA and the Gould Construction Institute in May.


Each non-renewable award will range from $500.00 to $2,500.00

Scholarship funds will be forwarded directly to the school upon verification of acceptance or matriculation for the next school term and any other information as requested by the scholarship committee.
