  • Membership status and INSTALL certifications held by the applicant

Applications can be submitted via installfloors.org/Scholarship-Program.xml. Deadline to submit is Oct. 31. Winners will be announced Nov. 6.

INSTALL has also named flooring accessory company Lonseal Flooring as an Alliance Partner in its mission to improve installation training and certification standards across the floor covering industry.
