Supporting the Future

Thanks to visionary volunteer leadership of AGC industry leaders, the AGC Education and Research Foundation, founded in 1968, has for more than 40 years made good on its commitment to support the future of our industry through its robust scholarship program and innovative projects.


Through endowments made by AGC members and supporters, as well as AGC Chapters, the Foundation is able to give 100 or more undergraduate and graduate scholarships each year to deserving students. Since 1970, we have awarded over 3,000 scholarships totaling over $8 million. Scholarship candidates are evaluated for their academic success, their commitment to the industry through participation in campus professional organizations, summer or part-time work in the construction industry, and their goals for the future.


The AGC Education and Research Foundation gives two prestigious awards annually, one to an educator who exemplifies excellence in the field of construction education, and the other to a senior-level student who submits the winning essay in the James L. Allhands Essay Competition.

Outstanding Educator Award
Since 1985, the AGC Education and Research Foundation has recognized annually an educator who makes a significant mark in the field of construction education.

James L. Allhands Student Essay Competition
The James L. Allhands award recognizes a student essay on a specific topic that is deemed to be beneficial to the advancement of technological, educational, or vocational expertise in the construction industry.

Research Projects

Faculty Internships
The Foundation is in its fourth year of an exciting ongoing initiative which creates a partnership among the Foundation, an AGC contractor, and an educational institution to provide an engaging summer internship experience for a faculty member on a construction project. The overall goal of the internship is to provide educators with jobsite field experience in order to provide this firsthand knowledge to their students. More information regarding faculty internships can be found on this page.

Industry Case Studies
The Foundation has commissioned a few new case studies, and is in the process of securing future studies. For information on past case studies, and on what is to come, please check our Research and New Initiatives.
