Flint Hills Resources is pleased to announce the availability of its Discovery Scholarship at local schools near the Fairmont ethanol plant. Discovery Scholarships are intended to help support the educational goals of outstanding graduating high school seniors from communities where the company operates. Since 2012, the company has awarded more than $60,000 in scholarships to students in Nebraska.
The Discovery Scholarship program awards one-time, $1,500 scholarships to graduating seniors who intend to pursue careers in STEM – science, technology, engineering and math – or agriculture. The scholarships can be used to cover tuition costs at the college, university, technical college or trade school of students’ choice. The program is part of Flint Hills Resources’ commitment to supporting quality educational opportunities in local communities where the company operates.
“A quality education is the foundation of a successful career,” said Darrell Birck, vice president of operations at Flint Hills Resources. “The Discovery Scholarship program recognizes outstanding, hardworking students interested in STEM and agricultural careers and helps them cover some of the costs associated with the next steps in their professional development.”
Eligible candidates should demonstrate academic achievement, leadership and entrepreneurial excellence. More information and applications are available for students from their school’s guidance counselor. Flint Hills Resources’ Discovery Scholarships are available at Exeter-Milligan High School, Fillmore Central High School, Friend Public School, McCool Junction High School, Sutton High School and York High School.
