The Construction Advancement Program of Western Pennsylvania Fund (CAP) is a service organization established in 1961 by the Master Builders’ Association of Western Pennsylvania, Inc. (MBA) to address the needs of contractors engaged in commercial, institutional, and industrial construction.

Today’s contractors depend on CAP’s services to assist them in their day-to-day functions, as well as for unexpected emergencies. By sponsoring programs dealing with the latest developments in construction processes, CAP has earned a reputation as a leader among the nation’s construction organizations.

CAP is committed to providing and supporting quality educational programs designed to engender and enhance the success of the construction industry. Because of that commitment, the CAP Board of Trustees and the MBA Board of Directors are granting a scholarship to assist the University of Pittsburgh in attracting outstanding students to its Construction Management Program and Civil Engineering Programs within the School of Engineering. The $15,000 annual allotment of scholarships is intended to provide the Western Pennsylvania construction industry with a diverse pool of highly qualified candidates in order to fulfill its employment needs in areas such as Project Managers, Project Engineers, Estimators, and Field Supervisors.
