E.ON U.S. Foundation Awards More Than $40,000 in Scholarships
Louisville, Ky. — To foster higher education, the E.ON U.S. Foundation has donated more than $40,000 to 10 high school seniors located in the E.ON U.S. service center.
The 11th Annual Scholarship Program granted the awards to children of E.ON U.S. employees. Each student will receive annual scholarships of $1,200 to be applied toward their tuition and other college expenses.
"Our scholarship program demonstrates the company's continued support of higher education and young people across the Commonwealth. The awards will help these outstanding students to shape their futures as they become the leaders of tomorrow," said Laura Douglas, vice president, E.ON U.S. Foundation.
Independent judges outside of E.ON U.S. evaluated more than 100 applicants based on academic skills, school and community activities, leadership abilities and work experience. Scholarships are renewable each year as long as the student continues to meet the eligibility requirements.
