John A. Cavanagh Scholarship Fund

In 2001, CAGNY created a college scholarship fund to enhance educational opportunities for tomorrow’s construction industry leaders. The fund was named the John A. Cavanagh Scholarship Fund in honor of John A. Cavanagh, a founding member of CAGNY, its past Chairman for over 20 years, and a Chairman Emeritus. Sadly, John passed away in 2012; a great loss for CAGNY and the New York City construction industry at large.

Each year, the Scholarship Fund presents a 4-year scholarship award to an eligible child from each CAGNY member company, as well as two 4-year awards to economically disadvantaged students enrolled in New York City high schools.

Honorable Mentions

In 2004, the JAC Scholarship Fund added the category of “Honorable Mention” to its Scholarship program. An Honorable Mention is a one-time stipend award to recognize a student’s outstanding academic achievements.
