ACIG Scholarship Opportunities


J.D. Abrams, L.P. is a member of The American Contractors Insurance Group which has established four (4) undergraduate scholarships with the AGC Education and Research Foundation in recognition and appreciation of the success of the ACIG Group and as a way to pay some construction industry dues.


They have requested that these scholarships be made available on a priority basis to employees and children of employees of ACIG clients who are pursuing a degree in construction management.


Starting in 2010, the AGC discontinued the use of paper applications.  All applications must be submitted online.  Applications may be obtained through the AGC website at AGC Scholarship Application.  In order to be given special consideration for our scholarship, please follow these instructions:


  1. List affiliation with ACIG under Activities, Employment or Additional Information.
  2. Include your company’s name in the appropriate blank in Section VI (the Additional Information tab) under the request to “List any members of your immediate family presently employed in the construction industry.” 
  3. List affiliation with ACIG in the Additional Comment block at the bottom of the section mentioned in 2. above.


All of these steps will help to identify your applicant as a priority candidate If you have any questions, you may contact my assistant, Ashleigh Holmes, at 972-687-9480 or by e-mail at  In addition, the AGC will be holding Q&A sessions this year.  Dates for the sessions will be posted at
