BPSTIL is proud to announce that four of our students have been awarded a $1000 scholarship through the Louisiana Construction Education Foundation (LCEF) Jump Start Construction Connect Scholars Program. The recipients of the scholarship are:
Jaden Jones (Welding)
Dominick Galvan (Welding)
Christopher Phillips (Carpentry)
Alejandro Perez (Carpentry).
To be eligible for this scholarship, the applicants had to be on track to earn a Jump Start Diploma, have earned an NCCER credential, and have plans to enroll in an LCTCS campus on a construction pathway or in an Associated Builders and Contractors training program. This scholarship, designed through a collaborative effort of the LCEF, LCTCS, and the Louisiana Department of Education is the state’s first and only scholarship dedicated exclusively to Jump Start graduates. We wish these recipients the best in their future endeavors.
