Building the Next Generation

Our commitment to amplifying the roles of women and minorities in Chicago’s construction community.

We’re thrilled to announce our newly established Building the Next Generation Scholarship Fund, benefitting the City Colleges of Chicago Foundation.

RCC is committed to equitable access to education for women in construction and architecture, and to elevating women’s roles across the industry.

We partnered with City Colleges of Chicago Foundation to establish a scholarship program for low-income women studying in the Construction Management program at Kennedy-King College in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood.

We hope that by directing our resources toward the college-to-careers pipeline we will encourage more women to pursue educational opportunities that will lead to fulfilling careers in this industry.

building the future, together

The first round of scholars will be chosen for the Spring 2018 semester, marking the start of our commitment to amplifying the voices and roles of women and minorities in Chicago’s construction community.

In addition to receiving tuition assistance, those scholars will be invited to a professional development luncheon at the RCC office.
