CHBA Central Okanagan launches scholarship for women in construction-related post-secondary programs

As part of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association Central Okanagan’s (CHBA-CO) unwavering commitment to empowering women in the residential construction industry, the HBA has created a scholarship to help women pursuing construction-related post-secondary programs in the Okanagan.

CHBA CEO Women in Construction Scholarship

Launched by CHBA-CO’s Women in Construction Committee, the $2,000 “Women in Construction Education Award” can be used for study, living expenses, daycare, rent, and other associated costs. “We believe in women supporting women,” Sara Tabadora, the committee’s Chair, said in a press release. “Through this award, we aim to set an example and guide aspiring individuals in their educational journey. Together, let’s pave the way for future generations of women to thrive in this dynamic field.” Applicants who are part of or not yet (but intend to be) enrolled in a construction-related program are eligible to apply by August 1. The recipient will be announced on September 1.
