The Carolinas AGC Foundation Scholarship program was put into place to assist individuals studying for careers in the construction industry as well as those wishing to advance their skills and knowledge to further their construction careers. The Scholarship committee distributed $12,000 to five very deserving students who will no doubt be great assets to our industry!

Congratulations to this year's winners!
