CE Bernhauer Jr. Scholarship

(Ed) Bernhauer, Jr., of Fresno Planing Mill, a longtime active and supporting member of the Institute. Mr. Bernhauer served as Woodwork Institute Treasurer and chaired the Technical Committee (responsible for publication and maintenance of the Manual of Millwork) from 1984 until his death in 1993.


The program is open to individuals interested in pursuing or furthering a career in the architectural millwork industry.

- Be employed and maintain employment during the educational period
- Be currently enrolled in a state college/university, private or community college, or a trade school

Selection of a recipient will be on an achievement or merit basis as determined by transcripts and moral and leadership qualities. Finalists will undergo a personal interview (by phone if necessary). The amount of monies available will be determined at the time a recipient is chosen. Scholarship monies will be distributed directly to the school of the student's choice upon receiving proof of enrollment; however they must be distributed within two (2) years of award or they will be forfeited.
