The SSPC Scholarship Program is funded in part by the proceeds from the Phil Calvo Memorial Golf Tournament, held each year in conjunction with the annual Coatings+ conference.
Each recipient has been awarded $2,500 in recognition of their impressive academic work.
In order to be considered for the SSPC scholarship, candidates must be a high school senior planning to enroll full-time or a student already enrolled full-time in an accredited institution of higher learning that has a three or four-year curriculum. They also must be a member of SSPC in good standing, or a child or grandchild of an SSPC member in good standing.
Awarded scholarship funds shall be applied to the direct costs of the student’s education courses. To coordinate the effort, SSPC will work with the institution’s financial aid office to ensure proper use of the funds.
In addition to the scholarship, each student is awarded a one-year membership in SSPC.
