CCD Scholarships


The Construction Career Days will grant scholarships (one-time lump sum distribution) to graduating high school seniors, or students earning a GED who have a genuine interest in the transportation field (engineering, construction management, or technical skills). Two different types of scholarship are available; the Vocational / Apprenticeship Scholarship and the College Scholarship. The total number of scholarships will be announced. Please read the instructions carefully and fulfill the requirements. Should you have questions that your parents, guidance counselor, or principal cannot answer, please call 1-800-749-2967 ext. 7533.
