As part of promoting professionalism within the remodeling industry, the National Remodeling Foundation awards scholarships each year to promote education within the remodeling industry. Scholarships can be awarded to individuals entering the Remodeling Industry or remodelers taking their industry education to the next level. 

Our scholarship program can be used for:

  • University, technical school or community college education related to the remodeling industry
  • Industry-recognized specialty certification and education programs
  • NARI, NKBA, and NAHBR Certifications

The NRF also considers scholarships for Executive Directors of NARI, NAHB, and NKBA chapters who wish to pursue their Certified Association Executive certification through ASAE (separate application).
