Sealant, Waterproofing & Restoration Foundation Scholarship
The number of grants and the dollar amount for each will be determined by the SWR Institute Board of Directors and a selection committee, but each grant will be up to $1,500. These grants will assist and encourage qualified students to further or continue their interest in selecting the construction industry and specifically the sealant, waterproofing, and restoration industry as a pending or continued career.
