In 2013, the Asphalt Contractors Association of Florida started the process of revamping its ACAF Scholarship program. Since then, we have incorporated a non-profit 501-c3 Florida Asphalt Scholarship Program, and annual fundraising events. On behalf of the Scholarship Committee, we are pleased to announce the following available scholarships to our members.
General requirements: These scholarships are available to any Florida resident whose parent, parents, or legal guardian is a member or is employed by a member of the Asphalt Contractors Association of Florida. This program is an umbrella program that currently encompasses several scholarships as described below.
Deadline for submission is February 28, 2018.
