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.

Ally Farrell | 2023 DCG Foundation Scholarship Recipient
Ally, a graduate of North Branford High School, has always been passionate about making a difference in the lives of others. Currently, Ally is a freshman at LSU, where she is pursuing a degree in Construction Management. Her decision to enter this field was heavily influenced by her father, an experienced flooring contractor. Growing up, Ally was exposed to construction projects, which sparked her interest in the industry. She realized that Construction Management perfectly aligns with her personality and career aspirations. She had the opportunity to intern at DCG in their Estimating Department, where she actively participated in bid walk-throughs, assisted in drafting bid documents, and managed various contractors. This experience has provided her with practical insights into the industry and has further solidified her passion for Construction Management. Her goal is to complete her degree and gain valuable experience working for an established construction company that shares her vision. With this experience under her belt, Ally hopes to eventually start her own Construction Management company.
