Industry Voices

The CLIC scholarship was such a blessing. I have been working as a contractor for small construction and landscape projects for free to help other students get experience for the real world while making a difference! The CLIC team made it possible for me to continue helping others while supporting my schooling. I couldn’t have kept moving forward without their help. Thank you CLIC and AGC!

I am extremely thankful to Marina and AGC as they offered me the scholarship on probably the most difficult year of my life. I was struggling with unemployment and the pandemic. There was no way I could afford to work this semester due to the heavy class load and the Marina Scholarship made it so much easier for me to achieve my goal of getting my bachelor's degree.
