The Baldwin County Home Builders Association awarded $7,000 in annual scholarships to local students. Since 1997, the BCHBA has awarded scholarships to deserving students pursuing careers in the home building industry.
Qualifying students must be enrolled in construction-related studies in a technical school or college. To date, the Association has awarded $97,600 in scholarships to help students in Baldwin County prepare for careers in the home building industry.
The Association is reaching out to students to encourage them to pursue a career in the building industry.
