Milwaukee/NARI Foundation Announces Academic Scholarship Availability

Feb. 1, 2013

The Milwaukee/NARI Foundation, Inc., the educational and charitable arm of the Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council, Inc., announced a scholarship opportunity for students for the 2013-2014 academic school year.



Students enrolling in one of the following programs can apply for the scholarship: Architecture, Carpentry, Electrical, Engineering, HVAC, Interior Design, Landscaping, Masonry, Plumbing, or other industry related curriculum.

 Students taking at least 12 credits during the 2013-14 academic year will be able to apply for a $1,000 scholarship, while those taking 6-11 credits can apply for a $500 scholarship.

The purpose of the Milwaukee/NARI Foundation Scholarship is to assist students who are residents of and plan to attend a southeastern Wisconsin institution, pursuing higher education in the remodeling industry – including associated mechanical, technical, and creative sectors. The schools must be located in Dodge, Jefferson, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Walworth, Washington, or Waukesha Counties.



“We plan to award up to 10 scholarships to those most deserving,” said Greg Adamec, Milwaukee/NARI Foundation president. “While a student’s grade point average and class rank will provide a point of reference for evaluating applicants, an emphasis will be placed on the student’s demonstration of work ethic, motivation, dedication, follow through, and creativity.”



“One of the objectives of the Milwaukee/NARI Foundation is to create a steady supply of qualified individuals to engage in remodeling as a career,” Adamec said. “We want the scholarship to serve as a means to enhance career opportunities in the home improvement and remodeling industries for future generations.”



Completed applications, which can be accessed at www.milwaukeenarifoundation.org, along with an essay, letters of recommendations, and college or post secondary acceptance letter, are due to the Milwaukee/NARI Foundation, P.O. Box 26788, Wauwatosa, WI 53226, by March 1, 2013. Recipient(s) will be notified by March 19, 2013. Call 414-771-4071 for additional information.

The goal of the Milwaukee/NARI Foundation is to promote public awareness of the home remodeling and improvement industry through educational programs and community activities and raise funds to support scholarships and grants to help encourage and train young people and displaced workers interested in the professional remodeling industry.



To carry out its purpose, the Foundation expends funds for the refinement and/or expansion of existing Milwaukee/NARI education programs, supports scholarships to assist professional training of individuals entering the home improvement and remodeling field, and embarks on activities judged necessary to insure an ample supply of professionally trained individuals.



Through various special events, including the annual Home Improvement Show raffle, Rummage Sale, Golf Outing, and Holiday Party, plus member contributions, the Foundation has provided more than $150,000 in scholarships, tools, and equipment for use by students and schools in southeastern Wisconsin. The Foundation has endowments at both Milwaukee Area Technical College and Waukesha County Technical College.
