For more than 60 years, the BX Scholarship Program has been providing tuition assistance to students in need. To date, more than $1.5 million has been awarded.

If you know someone who is studying architecture, construction management, engineering, interior design, communications or one of the many other fields of study that make up the broad community of commercial construction, encourage them to apply for a BX scholarship!
