Scholarship FAQs

“Attending the 2019 International Builders' Show as an NAHB scholarship recipient renewed my enthusiasm for my job and my industry by connecting me to other young professionals with similar goals to my own, and by providing opportunities to grow my confidence, my knowledge and my skill set.”

Cassidy Jones, Slate Creek Builders

"I loved the Selling Your Why session at IBS, it was all about getting to know your clients, so you can concentrate marketing efforts on 'real' prospects. When I got back from the show I used the survey techniques taught during the session to query clients about why and how they select a contractor. With that information I can focus on sharing our relevant value propositions, and not just competing on price."

Andrew Hayes, Hayes Construction, Inc.

"IBS is anything and everything you could ever dream about the building industry, and then tons more! There really wasn’t anything missing. The size and variety of vendors was so impressive. It's a totally comprehensive show!"

Jen Haywood, Texturious Designs
