The Tony Williamson Building Better Futures Scholarship was established to assist individuals interested in pursuing careers in the construction industry. The mission of this scholarship is to strengthen partnerships with local workforce development programs; provide support to individuals who are seeking employment or education in construction; increase diversity in the construction workforce; and to educate, through financial assistance and career development, the future leaders of the construction industry.
Since 2019, we have awarded $20,000 to 16 apprentices and assisted in placing six of those individuals on Swinerton projects.
