CMAA Scholarship Foundation
The CMAA-SAC Scholarship Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, will award a limited number of scholarships to qualified students as part of the Chapter’s ongoing efforts to provide the construction and design industries with a trained, educated workforce.
With the South Atlantic Region and most parts of the country facing a construction workforce shortage, CMAA-SAC decided the best way to help alleviate the problem was to have a dedicated foundation focused on the success, not only of students in construction and architecture programs, but those striving for trade degrees through the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG). The goal is to promote and enhance the delivery of the built environment by providing opportunities for continuous learning and improvement in the design, construction and industry trades through professional development and practice.
The CMAA-SAC Scholarship Foundation is a self-supporting scholarship program and is a 501 (c) 3 designated organization so contributions are tax deductible as a charitable donation.
