Tilcon Scholarship Open to Morris Knolls HS Students


Tilcon is pleased to be a steward of youth education in all of the communities which we are proud to serve.  Like our country, Tilcon thrives when there is an educated and productive community where families are able to flourish.  To this end, Tilcon has a proud tradition of helping the communities we serve to be safe, productive and enjoy a great quality of life.  Tilcon is pleased to provide scholarships to worthy students who exemplify the qualities necessary in order for future generations to continue to keep our communities great.  

Students who are interested in the Tilcon Academic Scholarship will be evaluated on a combination of academics, extracurricular activities, special hardship / economic circumstances, and career interests.  Special attention will be paid to those interested in construction / engineering, math and science and technical trades.  We also look for the well-rounded student who will benefit from additional financial assistance in order to meet career and life objectives.  Being a good neighbor and community partner is a longstanding core principal that is a pillar of Tilcon’s corporate culture.

Scholarship winners will also be considered for internships at Tilcon and Tilcon’s parent company, Oldcastle.  Both Tilcon and Oldcastle believe in partnering with educational institutions to give students real world experience though internships.  Our companies have historically hired many who have served as interns.
