WASHINGTON — A new National Housing Endowment scholarship will help pay for students to attend the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) National Green Building Conference. The scholarship was announced at a dinner honoring winners of the NAHB National Green Building Awards.

Founding contributor Tommy Ford Construction endowed the scholarship in honor of Texas entrepreneur T. Boone Pickens, who gave the keynote speech at the awards dinner in Dallas on May 8.

The new scholarship fund will provide support to students in a two-year or four-year design and construction education and training program. The National Housing Endowment will manage the fund.
