PURPOSE: AGC Student Chapter's provide young professionals with an opportunity to observe and develop their skills with current industry leaders.
As a student chapter affiliated and active with AGC Michigan, and recognized by AGC of America, the AGC Michigan Educational Endowment Fund (EEF) seeks to provide scholarships, grants, and other financial aid to assist chapters and student members in pursuing college, university, technical and other education and training relating to architectural, engineering, and/or construction.
FUNDS: Funding is intended to support AGC Michigan Student Chapter activities, with priority given those directly related to attendance at AGC Michigan events, classes, training, and activities.
The amount of funding available will be set by the EEF Trustees each year and may vary based on scholarships award and fund balance status.
REQUEST FOR FUNDS: AGC Michigan Student Chapters may request funds by completing and submitting the following request form to Viki Gotts (email@example.com). EEF Trustees will review requests for funds and notify applicants of their status. Application for funds requested for the 2019-2020 school year must be received by October 31, 2019.
Information requested on the application:
We need to know in detail what is planned and why, who will be involved both as leaders and participants, what it will cost and how it will be paid for, why the requested support from EEF is needed and how it will be used.
ELIGIBILITY: Support is available to all active student chapters of AGC of America and affiliated with AGC of Michigan on a competitive basis. Each Student Chapter is required to submit a Student Chapter Membership Roster and an Annual Report of activities to the EEF with this application.
The Annual Report is generally 2–4 pages in length and will provide documentation of individual student chapter activities. Annual Reports will include the names and email addresses of chapter officers. Annual Reports are critical to ensuring good communication, and as such should be concise, informative, well written and reviewed and/or signed by academic advisors prior to submission.
The Student Chapter Membership Roster is used to provide useful information to assist EEF Trustees in determining ways to improve and support student chapter programs. It will include each member name, address, e-mail and class (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior).
ASSESSMENT OF APPLICATIONS: The EEF Trustees will assess applications and recommend approval of funding, typically within the month following the submission deadline.
Criteria taken into consideration by the EEF Trustees when assessing a submitted proposal:
- Student Chapter making the request is active, in compliance, and conducts regular activities involving members
- Planned activities are directly related to the construction industry
- Activities are designed to benefit Chapter members and other construction and related students
- The number of participants involved in the activity
- A clear explanation of why the EEF funds are needed and what they will be used for.
