Congratulations to last year's Legacy Scholarship winners!

Scholarship Philosophy

Contractors For a Cause believes that helping local students realize a career in and/or affiliated in the field of construction industry (including electric, mechanical, architecture, engineering, design, etc.) through continued education and/or journeyman ship, will assist them to further develop trade knowledge and skills. We hope that these skills will not only benefit the individual, but will additionally benefit our community service need for the future. Recipients of the Legacy Scholarship, that proceed to attain an accredited education and field expertise in their chosen field of construction, have CFAC's continued commitment to assist them with career opportunities in the construction industry.

(2) Two scholarships of $3000.00 each will be awarded. The purpose of these scholarships is to recognize two local high school graduating seniors, planning to pursue a career in, or one affiliated with, the field of construction. Indian River High School students can contact Counselor Sonya Purcell and Sussex Technical High School Counselor Greg Hockman.
