A program of the Midwest Building Suppliers Association

Thank you for your interest in the Blair Collings Scholarship Program. The 2019 application period is now closed, but we look forward to your participation beginning February 2020.

MBSA is pleased to present scholarship opportunities for MBSA members. Named to honor the memory of Blair F. Collings of Rockville, Indiana, the scholarship awards collectively represent one of the largest academic scholarship programs among lumber and building material associations in the country.

The funding for the scholarship program, including all amounts awarded, is derived from the volunteer efforts of leaders of MBSA. The main fundraising events for the program are the Sycamore Scramble Golf Outing in Indiana, and the White Pine Classic in Michigan, both held every summer. The money is raised by the generosity of the members in hole sponsorships, player fees, special contributions, and gifts. It is at these annual events that scholarships are awarded.

Who is eligible to apply?

Any employee, associate, and/or immediate family member of an employee or associate of a member firm of the Midwest Building Suppliers Association (MBSA), including retail and “associate”, is eligible to apply, regardless of applicant’s career choice, course of study, or grade level.
