The California Homebuilding Foundation scholarship program was founded on the belief that any motivated individual in need should have the opportunity to further their education or skills in the homebuilding and construction industry. Scholarships are awarded to BITA graduates who are continuing their education in postsecondary homebuilding related programs, community colleges and technical schools. Applications are accepted throughout the year.
