Applications for the Bruce Newbrough Memorial Scholarship for the Certified Installation Manager (CIM) program are being accepted until Friday, March 18.

Sponsored by the Flooring Contractors Association (FCICA), in cooperation with Ardex Americas and nora systems, the Bruce Newbrough Memorial Scholarship was established to provide educational opportunities to floor covering installation managers who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to and excellence in proper substrate preparation and installation of floor covering.

Bruce Newbrough, as Ardex's director of technical services, and later applications development, tirelessly utilized every opportunity to further his vision and passion for industry education and training on proper substrate preparation, all for the purpose of achieving successful installations. According to the association, this is the foundation on which FCICA was built and the reason that Bruce was a dedicated ambassador of this organization.

The scholarship will be awarded Thursday, March 31.
