NESCA Scholarships


In recognition of the growing need to educate the construction industry's future workforce, in 2006 NESCA established two endowed scholarship funds through the Hudson Valley Community College Foundation. The purpose of both endowments is to provide Hudson Valley students in the Construction Technology and Electrical Construction and Maintenence programs with an opportunity to help fund their educational pursuits. Through the endowed scholarship funds, NESCA and its members take a more active role in preparing tomorrow's workforce by investing in them today.

The misson of HVCC's Construction Technology program is to meet the educational needs of the construction industry by training entry-level construction managers and by providing continuing education for construction employees. Similarly, the mission of the Electrical Construction and Maintenance program is to provide a program of study that enables students to develop the academic skills and practical techniques neccessary for them to seek entry into any area of the electrical industry.

The job placement rate after graduation from these two programs approaches 100 percent. Upon graduation, nearly 80 percent of the students take employment within the construction industry. In fact, of the 2,600 "active alumni" of these programs, 77 percent of them currently work and reside in the Capital Region. Program graduates are working for contractors and subcontractors throughout the Capital Region as project managers, supervisors, estimators, draftspersons, materials testers, technicians, and in other capacities.

In 2018, NESCA Past President Roger Jones of Campito Plumbing & Heating, Inc. donated $20,000 to the association for the establishment of a new college scholarship which has since been named the Roger H. Jones NESCA Scholarship.
