The EGIA Foundation is excited to announce the recipients of the 2022-2023 EGIA Foundation HVAC HERO Scholarship program as part of its ongoing commitment to improving the workforce shortage in the home services industry. A judging panel consisting of contractors, board members, and other industry professionals selected 19 students based on academic merit, financial need, and their passion for the industry to receive $2,500 each to help cover the cost of HVAC-related tuition at accredited institutions during the 2022-2023 academic year.
Founded in 2018, the EGIA Foundation began the HVAC HERO Scholarship program in response to the growing labor shortage affecting contracting businesses across the country. To date, the Foundation has awarded 87 scholarships to talented, hardworking students in 29 states across the country, totaling over $217,000 that has been directed towards helping educate the future of the HVAC industry’s workforce. The EGIA Foundation is proud to continue the progress of removing financial barriers to ensure that future industry workers may pursue a career that they are passionate about and proud of.

I decided to go into the HVAC trade because it’s a high-demand job and in places like Texas, air conditioning is the number one priority in a household. After I graduate, I plan on working at a company that will help me continue building my skills so that eventually, I can own my own contracting business.
