Scholarship Program

The DCG Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion in the construction industry. Through scholarship programs, mentorship initiatives, and community partnerships, the foundation strives to empower women and minority students to pursue successful careers in construction.

The DCG Foundation scholarship is open to women and minority students who are currently enrolled or planning to enroll in an accredited construction-related degree program. By providing financial support, the foundation aims to empower and encourage these talented individuals to pursue their dreams and make a lasting impact in the construction industry. The scholarship funds can be used to cover tuition fees, textbooks, supplies, and other educational expenses.

Every year, the DCG Foundation bestows a $2,500 scholarship upon a deserving student who aspires to pursue their education in the construction field. Although our efforts were momentarily disrupted by the unfortunate COVID-19 pandemic, we have successfully resumed our activities and are eagerly looking forward to announcing our scholarship recipient this summer.

George Hall | 2022 DCG Foundation Scholarship Recipient

George Hall, a young man of many talents and passions, will be attending the University of Notre Dame, Indiana with the long-term goal of acquiring a master’s degree in structural engineering through the school’s College of Engineering program.

A graduate of Maloney High School in Meriden, CT, Hall discovered his desire to pursue a career in engineering and architecture on a trip to New York City. While it would be understandable to be drawn in by the city’s famous skyline, Hall’s life-changing NYC experience instead centered on seeing in person the plight of the city’s homeless population. Working towards finding affordable and sustainable solutions to the problem of homelessness became a purposeful goal.

Hall’s impressive resume includes graduating 8th in his class out of 318 students and being involved in the high school’s band, cross country team and theater program among other pursuits. But the 18-year-old is most proud of his work as Vice Chairperson of Sustainable Meriden, a group whose mission is to improve the community through development projects. Hall’s contributions included helping coordinate the building of a skate park, a mural painting program to beautify the downtown area, the redesign of Police Department Plaza and the design of a solar carport pilot plan. Since 2018, Hall has completed over 343 hours of community service through a variety of volunteer activities.
