Research shows that many students who enroll in college, including those enrolled in construction courses drop out before completing their training.
The Holmes Foundation’s Make It Right® Scholarships are designed to encourage students in Canadian colleges and universities who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence in residential renovation or construction to complete their academic training.
Every academic year The Holmes Foundation will award up to ten scholarships of $1,500 each - up to five will be awarded to male students and up to five will be awarded to female students. The students must be entering or enrolled in a residential construction program at a Canadian college or university. The scholarships will be awarded in trust to students who are judged by The Holmes Foundation to have combined academic excellence with a commitment to a career in residential construction or renovation.
Please note that applications received after June 14, 2013 will not be considered.
