The Davis Memorial Foundation, now in its 20th year of supporting higher education, was established in memory of Larry and Mary Davis. Larry was an integral part of the roofing industry for many years serving on several roofing industry association boards which included the RCA of California and the Western States Roofing Contractors Association.
Larry and his wife Mary perished in a 1995 airplane accident near their home in Modesto while returning from a WSRCA Board meeting. This fund was established to honor their support for industry education.
The Davis Memorial Foundation awards scholarships each year to individuals who want to further their education. This year, based on the generous support of members like you, we've added an additional scholarship - bringing our total to (6) $5,000 awards for 2016. Priority is given to students who want to attend a trade school, or get a college or university degree that relates to the construction industry. Employees, spouses, and children of roofing industry professionals in particular are encouraged to apply.
Awards are based on both academic and personal achievements. Although financial need is not a requirement for the award, the Foundation will consider level of financial need as the final criteria if, in the judgement of the selection committee, candidates are otherwise ranked equally. Don't delay - complete applications are due to the WSRCA office postmarked no later than April 15, 2016.
All Candidates Must Be:
• High school students, undergraduate or graduate students.
• Technical trade school students
• Provisionally accepted as students into undergraduate or graduate degree programs for the coming academic year by accredited colleges or universities.
