The HBA Charitable Foundation awards two types of scholarships each year. The HBA Family Scholarship is designed for the children and grandchildren of HBA members who intend to continue their education past the high school level. This is a one-time scholarship of $1000, to the North Carolina public school of their choice. Students must apply for the scholarship, and their sponsoring parent or grandparent must be an active member of the HBA of Raleigh-Wake County. Contact Rachel with questions.
The other scholarship we offer is through Wake Tech. Every year, the Charitable Foundation gives WT $10,000 to distribute to students studying in homebuilding-related fields, such as engineering, HVAC, plumbing, and construction management. Students are selected by a committee at Wake Tech for these awards and receive $1000 at a time, but may reapply each year if they are still studying in an appropriate field.
