AFSA created the Design School Scholarship Program for AFSA Contractor members in Categories 1-3 to aid in training fire sprinkler layout technicians for their design departments. A limited number of scholarships have been allocated to this program and will assist students in attending the beginning and intermediate design schools taught by AFSA.
Eligible Contractor members will select an employee and they will complete the application together. Applications will be judged blindly by the Public Education & Awareness Committee’s Scholarship Sub-Committee each quarter.
The retail value of this package is $4,500.
