AWI Education Foundation Awards $50,000 in Scholarships
For the first time in its history of giving, the Education Foundation of the Architectural Woodwork Institute (AWIEF) has awarded 25 scholarships totaling $50,000 to eligible students who aspire to careers in the woodwork industry.
The scholarship awards mark a milestone for the AWIEF resulting from a $1 million contribution from the Quality Certification Corporation in 2021 for annual Scholarship funding of $50,000 per year for 20 years. The student support funds are designated as Randolph Estabrook Scholarships in honor of QCC’s former Executive Director.
“Of 25 winners this year, eight are female, which is worth celebrating as a natural outcome of more diverse interest in the architectural woodwork industry,” AWIEF Director and AWI CEO Doug Hague said. Students attending or enrolled in eight academic institutions received scholarships.
“In four years’ time, the number of scholarships awarded has more than doubled, from 10 -25. The ‘giving arm of AWI’ has delivered more than $269,000 in scholarships since its founding in 2008 to help perpetuate the architectural woodwork industry,” Hague said.
AWI manufacturing and industry members can now receive a one-time free test battery of base, wall and tall cabinet construction methods and materials. Participation in this benefit will aid your company as well as grow the member resource of compliant methods and materials. Contact Hunter Morrison for full details.
