DP&L and Vectren offering scholarships for high school seniors

February 22, 2014

DAYTON – Dayton Power & Light (DP&L) and Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio (Vectren), are offering three new scholarships to high school seniors who plan to work in the energy industry.

Each $1,000 scholarship will be granted for college tuition and expenses to deserving students who have demonstrated outstanding energy leadership, knowledge and an interest in continuing their energy studies by pursuing an energy-related career.

The scholarships will be facilitated by the Ohio Energy Project, a non-profit energy education organization that also works with DP&L and Vectren on their energy efficiency programs and activities, including the annual Energy Fair. The Energy Fair, which will be held March 7 at the University of Dayton, allows high school students to teach younger students about energy efficiency through hands-on experiments and games.

Students applying for the new scholarships must be graduating seniors, residents of DP&L and Vectren’s service territories and members of families who are DP&L or Vectren customers. Students will also have to demonstrate involvement in energy-related classroom, school or community activities or programs.

The deadline for applying for a scholarship is April 15.

Information about the scholarships is being distributed to area schools. To get an application package, contact Pam Addison at the Ohio Energy Project at paddison@ohioenergy.org.
