Keystone Chapter, Associated Builders & Contractors Inc. (ABC) — ABC Keystone congratulated this year’s recipients of the ABC Keystone Annual Endowment Scholarship. The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize outstanding undergraduate construction students enrolled full-time at Pennsylvania State University in Harrisburg.

The scholarship is based on need, GPA, activities, work experience/pertinence to construction field and evaluators. A committee ranks the individual applicants and then comes together to provide the final recommendations to ABC for review.
