The True Homes Foundation Scholarship exists to specifically advance opportunities for minorities and/or women in the residential construction and land development industry.

The Scholarship will be available for rising juniors or rising Seniors who have a fifth year left to complete their degree in a construction management program.

It is directed at students and programs that have an emphasis on residential construction.  We believe that this will help provide a solution to an ongoing need for students within our communities that we serve and the homebuilding industry.
