The Roofing Alliance

In 1996, The Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress was established within the National Roofing Foundation to create an endowment fund to serve as a highly focused resource for the roofing industry and its customers. Its objectives are to conduct research and educational projects that support high-quality programs for roofing contractors; ensure timely and forward-thinking industry responses to major economic and technological issues; and enhance the long-term viability and attractiveness of the industry to roofing workers.

The Melvin Kruger Endowed Scholarship program was established by the Roofing Alliance in 2008 and sponsors scholarships for undergraduate students who are employees, immediate family members of employees or immediate family members of NRCA contractor and supplier members.

Recently, The Roofing Alliance began working with some of the top construction management academic programs in the U.S. to lay the groundwork for enhancing students' experiences by exposing them academically and experientially to roofing as a potential career choice.
