Details of the Carl A. Bongiovanni Memorial Scholarship

Carl A. Bongiovanni was a lifelong resident of Allegheny County and was deeply involved in his community and his industry in a number of capacities. He passed away unexpectedly on January 26, 2017.  As the second generation owner of Bon Tool Co. and a founding committee member of the VICA/Skills USA’s Masonry Competition, he was acutely aware of the shortage of skilled tradespeople, the importance of a strong education in those trades and the financial commitment required to obtain such an education.


The purpose of this scholarship is to provide students with funding for beginning or continuing his or her education in the building/construction trades at a post-secondary institution. The scholarship is worth $1,000 per year, sent directly to the educational institution, for as long as the student is enrolled in the program (up to 3 years). To be eligible, the applicant must be enrolled in a major construction trade program at an approved vocational or career and technical school in Pennsylvania.
