Take the first steps to entering the industry!

TARC Entering the Industry
May 5, 2024 at 3:00 p.m.

By Emma Peterson. 

Apply for the TARC scholarship program before May 15 to help prepare for your future as a contractor! 

Since 1965, the Tennessee Association of Roofing Contractors (TARC) has strived to foster a high standard for contractors and manufacturers across the state by facilitating continuing education and special training opportunities. Another way the association works to support those in the industry today and in the future is through their scholarship program.  

This program is designed to help students related to TARC members in their pursuit of higher education. This includes both academic programs at colleges and vocational training programs. Each scholarship is for $1,000 and there are three awarded each year: the Contractor’s Dependent Scholarship, the Contractor’s Dependent Scholarship and the Thomas Herbert Scholarship. For those interested in this year’s scholarship program, the application process opened on January 1, 2024 and the deadline to submit is May 15, 2024. 

One of the past recipients of the Contractor’s Dependent Scholarship, W. Cole Pond with Water Control Roofing, wrote to TARC about how much the scholarship means to them. Check out what they had to say: 

“I was fortunate enough to receive the Contractor's Dependent Scholarship that TARC offers for my freshman year in 2019, as well as my junior year in 2021. I am writing this letter to show my utmost gratitude to TARC. I am a 3rd generation "roofer" which I use that term lightly given that I only spent a few months in the field and my mother was never in the field, nonetheless, my family has been in the industry for quite a while now.  

I attended Volunteer State Community College and then transferred to Western Kentucky University where I majored in Construction Management. I knew that I would likely stay in the industry and come to work at Water Control Rooting Company, (which my grandfather started and where my mother and I work).  

Everyone knows that college isn't cheap, so any and all financial help I got was more than appreciated. Receiving such financial help from an association that is continuously improving the industry, that I will likely spend the rest of my working life in, felt like a warm welcome into the world of roofing. I look forward to being a member of TARC for years to come.” 

Apply online for the scholarship program today!
