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 a construction field. Although our efforts were 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.
