The Flooring Contractors Association (FCICA), in cooperation with Ardex Americas and nora systems, have extended the deadline for first-quarter applications for the Bruce Newbrough Memorial CIM Scholarship to Sunday, March 20.

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 March 31.
