The Ted G. Wilson Memorial Scholarship is available to all students (High School seniors and above) that plan to further their education in the construction industry. Only those that are a resident of, or plan to attend a school or university in the states where PCEA has an established Chapter will qualify. At present, those states are North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.  The Scholarship is funded, in part, by the Order of Isosceles Fellowship.

(something for all PCEA members to be proud of)

National PCEA Ted G. Wilson Memorial Scholarship Foundation, Inc.

At the PCEA National Convention May 21, 1988 in memory of Ted Wilson (1932-1987), the first National Executive Director of the PCEA.

An endowed National PCEA Foundation to provide scholarships in each of the states that have PCEA chapters. This is a separate IRS 501(c) (3) charitable corporation.

Board of Trustees (presently 5 members) - Chairperson is the National PCEA President-Elect, with one Trustee appointed from each state which has PCEA chapters, each serving three years on a rotating basis. DUTIES INCLUDE: Supervision of day-to-day operations, investments, fundraising promotions, annual budget, and setting scholarship amounts based on income of investments, etc.

Each state with PCEA chapters has a State Committee, consisting of a Chairperson (who is that state's Trustee) plus three other members

Each serve three years on a rotating basis.


  • Promote the Foundation.
  • Solicit funds and fundraisers.
  • Encourage donations from members, chapters, companies, Order of Isosceles.
  • Solicit applications for scholarships and distribute application forms.
  • Receive and judge applications using a prescribed method of evaluation
  • Award scholarships in the most favorable and most visible way possible to let public know about the PCEA.
  • Generate publicity for all of the above.

Was conceived by the Trustees in 1989 to generate income by the enrollment fee, which goes directly to the Foundation, thus helping the PCEA fulfill its obligation to future generations. Membership in the Order of the Isosceles is accompanied by a one-time $500 assessment, which is tax deductible. Individuals may enroll themselves, companies may give someone a membership as a tribute to hard work and dedication. Chapters can enroll persons they wish to recognize for service, and families can present an enrollment to a member as a special gift. Fellows in the Order of the Isosceles are bearers of opportunity for future construction leaders - they do not have to be a member of the PCEA.
