The AGC Education and Research Foundation Thanks AGC Member Contractors and ACG Chapter Staff

Each year, AGC contractors and AGC chapter staff across the country generously donate their time to interview finalists for AGC scholarships. These interviews are very important to our process of ensuring that recipients are indeed serious about their careers in the industry and will be an asset when they arrive. The response from the contractors who are asked to conduct interviews is overwhelmingly positive and more so after they meet the students, who appreciate the opportunity to interact with these industry leaders.
