The Springfield Contractors Association has been awarding scholarship since 1980. Many of the past scholarship recipients have elected to stay local upon graduation and others have gone on to work with construction and architecture firms both nationally and worldwide. Some of the recipients currently serve in leadership positions for the Springfield Contractors Association.
In the 1980’s and 1990’s the scholarships were funded out of the Springfield Contractors Association’s general fund. In 2003 the Springfield Contractors Association started the Scholarship Endowment Fund that, once fully funded, will serve the needs of students for generations to come. The Scholarship Endowment Fund’s original goal was $100,000, which was met in 2018. Scholarships began being distributed directly from the SCA’s Endowment Fund with Community Foundation of the Ozarks in 2019. The main source of revenue for the endowment is the annual Chicken BBQ. Additional individual and company donations have been also accepted.
The Springfield Contractors Association will award scholarships based on merit and need.The number and amount of scholarships given annually will be determined by the Scholarship Committee.
