The SITE Advancement Foundation has awarded $15,000 in scholarships to six deserving St. Louis area students seeking to further their education at college or technical schools in the Fall 2022 semester. The scholarships are made possible through voluntary contributions from SITE Improvement Association member companies and from the SITE Advancement Foundation Scholarship Fund, which has awarded more than $350,000 in scholarships over the past 22 years.
“With the cost of college and technical school education rising rapidly, a $2500 scholarship can make a big impact on an aspiring student’s ability to pursue their educational and career goals,” said Jeremy Bennett, Executive Director of the SITE Improvement Association. “We are pleased to be able to support these six very deserving students and wish them well in their studies.”
High school graduates and college students with a parent employed by one of the 230 SITE member companies are eligible for the scholarships, which are based on each student’s academic achievements, involvement in the community and financial need.
