2017 PWB Scholarships
Apply Today!

On behalf of the Denver Professional Women in Building Council (PWB), we are happy to announce two individual scholarships valued at $200 each, available to PWB members. These scholarships are part of the Building Hope Scholarship Fund provided by the NAHB Professional Women in Building Council, which offers women educational assistance and a wonderful opportunity to further their professional development.

The Denver PWB Chapter became eligible for these scholarships, based on two categories that were awarded during the NAHB PWB annual luncheon at the International Builder's Show in January. They include the following:

  • Community Outreach Programs - 2nd Place award
  • Innovative Programs - 2nd Place award

We encourage you as a PWB member to apply and tell us why you would be a good a candidate, based on your professionalism and promise as a future leader in our community. These scholarship funds can be used toward tuition and books for courses at our new Metro Denver HBA University or other fees related to ongoing education in the home building industry.

Two of our 2016 winners shared their thoughts on being awarded scholarships last year:

"I am so grateful for the scholarship through PWB! I will be using it for my continuation for my MIRM designation! Thank you!" Lauren Karsh, MIRM, CMP - Milesbrand~~~

 "I was truly honored to receive one of the scholarships awarded by the Denver PWB. I applied the scholarship toward gaining my MIRM designation which will help further my career. I encourage anyone interested in continuing education to take advantage of this great opportunity." Becky Hunt - Listell Marketing~~~

Eligibility for the scholarships includes the following criteria:

  1. A Denver PWB Member in good standing.
  2. PWB Members who are enrolled in a college, university or trade school in a course related to the homebuilding industry
  3. PWB Members who are taking continuing education courses in the homebuilding industry, including CSP, MIRM, Certified Graduate Builder and Remodeler, Registered Builder Program or other related courses
