Factors the AHB Foundation Scholarship Committee Considers
  • Career Goal: The AHBF supports applicants who are pursuing an education in the residential construction industry. Be sure to tell us how your chosen career relates to the residential construction industry.
  • Past Recipient: The AHBF encourages past recipients of the scholarship to reapply each year as they are given preference in the award process.
  • Financial Need: The AHBF recognizes financial need as an important factor in awarding scholarships. Leaving financial information blank does not benefit the applicant.
  • Academic Achievement: The AHBF supports academic achievement but knows not all students are A students. The GPA is not necessarily the most important aspect of a student’s transcript. The scholarship committee is interested in what courses the student has taken, how the courses relate to the residential construction industry, as well as the GPA and any standardized testing scores.
  • Extra-curricular Activities: The AHBF is interested in hearing what you do inside and outside of school. It gives the scholarship committee a better idea of who they may be supporting.
  • Letters of Recommendation: A letter of recommendation is important in the application process. Make sure to include at least one signed letter of recommendation, preferably on letterhead.
  • Completeness of Application: Be sure to completely fill out the application and submit all required documents. The AHBF scholarship committee will not review incomplete applications.
  • Application Deadline: Make sure your application is in or postmarked by March 15. Late applications will not be considered.
  • Applicants can expect to hear whether they are a scholarship recipient by the end of
    April, via mail.
  • For questions please contact Louise Brown at 334-834-3006.
