The EQT Students of Excellence Scholarship Fund was established at the Washington County Community Foundation in 2019 to provide scholarships to graduating Washington County high school seniors.
To be considered for a scholarship, applicants must pursue either an associate’s or a bachelor’s degree in a field utilized in the energy industry (e.g., computer science or information technology; civil, chemical, or petroleum engineering; energy or land management; environmental science; geology, safety science; or welding). Additionally, scholarship applicants must demonstrate excellence in the following areas: academic performance, community involvement, extra-curricular activities, and leadership.
Upon the creation of the Fund, Ellen Rossi, EQT Foundation Manager remarked, “The EQT Foundation strives to identify opportunities that impact the communities we serve in powerful ways. And, what better way to shape the future than by supporting the education of tomorrow’s leaders and innovators. We are pleased to offer our EQT Students of Excellence scholarship program to the Washington County community through the assistance of the WCCF, and we look forward to learning more about the exceptional achievements and professional aspirations of this year’s scholarship recipients.”
The EQT Foundation was established by EQT Corporation, one of the nation’s premier natural gas producers, and is committed to the social and economic vitality of our operating regions. The EQT Foundation believes in meaningful engagement with the communities it calls home and takes great pride in the role as both a responsible and responsive corporate citizen. The EQT Foundation has developed strong partnerships with a variety of nonprofit organizations to enrich the diversity and viability of our communities, sustain the principles of continuous learning, and focus on environmental protection efforts.
