Our main goal is to provide scholarships for those desiring to become part of the vast construction field.

PGCA is proud to have contributed scholarships funds for Pueblo Community College students, Colorado State University students, District 70’s new AMAC program, as well as individual students connected to the contracting community.

Our scholarship funding comes from member events such as the annual PGCA Golf Tournament.
