SWR Foundation Student Scholarships

Providing academic scholarships is a central mission of the SWR Foundation. The SWR Foundation is open to any student of an accredited college, university, community college or trade school.  All students are welcome to apply. SWR Institute understands that it needs a strong, educated workforce and looks to SWR Foundation scholarship recipients to help fill this need.  student applicants must show that their degree or study would be directly relevant to the sealant, waterproofing or restoration industry. 

Scholarship 
The SWR Foundation Board of Directors will determine the number and dollar amount of scholarships awarded.  The maximum scholarship amount that can be awarded for a student over the life of academic life is $5,000. Most scholarships are for $1,000 or $1,500 per semester per recipient.  The purpose of these scholarships will be to assist and encourage qualified students to further or continue their interest in the construction industry, specifically the sealant, waterproofing, and restoration industry, as a pending or continued career.
