The California Homebuilding Foundation offers thousands of dollars in scholarships each year to deserving students majoring in building, trades and programs such as construction management, urban planning and architecture.

Building homes in California is too important a priority to neglect the education, training and research needed to support the residential construction industry.

The California Homebuilding Foundation scholarship program was founded on the belief that any motivated individual in need should have the opportunity to further his or her education.

2019 Scholarship Offerings Coming Soon 


A majority of the Foundation's scholarships were established by CHF Hall of Fame honorees. It’s an example of how established homebuilding professionals have reached out to offer opportunities to a new generation of individuals who are interested in a career in the homebuilding industry. Meet our Benefactors.

When an endowment gift is received, the principal is held in perpetuity, with the annual earnings generating support is designated by the donor. Unlike current-use gifts, which may be spent completely for immediate needs, endowment gifts are invested and only the earned income portion can be spent.
