The Community Foundation of Greene County announces a new scholarship made possible through the generosity of the EQT Foundation.
The EQT Students of Excellence Scholarship provides up to $18,000 per school year, renewable for up to three consecutive years, to one qualifying student. An additional five students will receive a one-time $1,000 scholarship.
To be eligible for the award applicants must be a graduating senior resident of Greene County (public, private or homeschooled) pursuing a degree in a field that supports the energy industry, such as, computer science or information technology, civil, chemical or petroleum engineering, energy or land management, environmental science, geology, safety science or welding.
The EQT Students of Excellence Scholarship is the largest scholarship offered through the community foundation and will make a significant impact on the recipient.
“CFGC is honored to partner with EQT in providing these scholarship opportunities for Greene County students,“ said Bettie Stammerjohn, executive director of the Greene County Community Foundation. “There are many excellent students who can benefit from the $1,000 scholarships as well as the one renewable scholarship of up to $18,000 per year.”
Established by the EQT Corporation in 2003, the EQT Foundation is committed to the social and economic viability of the regions where they operate as a natural gas producer.
“The EQT Foundation strives to identify opportunities that impact the communities we serve in powerful ways,” said Dave Smith, President of the EQT Foundation. “And what better way to shape the future than by supporting the education of tomorrow’s leaders and innovators.”
