“We’re proud to announce that applications for this year’s EGIA Foundation Scholarship Program are now being accepted,” said EGIA Foundation Board Chairman and CEO Bruce Matulich. “Although 91% of high school students plan to pursue a post-secondary education, 10% plan to enroll in a vocational program; even less will take an HVAC or construction related path. The EGIA Foundation Scholarship Program hopes to bring publicity to the vast opportunities and lucrative starting salaries available, in addition to helping 20 students get a leg up on their career by supporting their education.”
