$2,000 Technical Scholarships
available through the
Factory-Built Home Industry.
Up to four (4) will be awarded in 2024.
In recent years, construction-related industries have had very few individuals apply for educational assistance, whose intent was to pursue advanced training through a trade or technical school.
The Tennessee Housing Association (THA) values these gifted students and appreciates their specific talents and ambitions.
Currently, there are an estimated 650,000 construction-related jobs available across the nation. The factory-built housing industry is just one of many construction-related businesses who are successful due to specialized artisans.
Scholarship applicants MUST be associated with the manufactured or modular housing construction industry in some way, to be considered.
In order for a student to be eligible to receive one of the stated financial awards from the Stan & Thelma Plumlee Scholarship fund, the following criteria must be followed:
Scholarship assistance opportunities are not limited to graduating seniors, but are specific to the pursuit of technical or trades-related training which supports the construction industry.
It is the policy and commitment of the Stan & Thelma Plumlee Scholarship Fund not to discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, age, disability, marital status, or veteran status.
