Solvay USA, Inc. Announces Scholarship Recipients

Solvay USA Inc. has awarded their annual The Solvay USA Inc. Engineering for Environmental Protection Scholarship for 2016 to Jacob Bentley, who plans to study Metallurgical & Materials Engineering at Montana Tech.

In 2001, Rhodia Inc. began awarding the scholarship to future Montana Tech students who share their commitment to the environment and who are pursuing a degree in engineering. Each year, at least one $2,000 scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior who has been accepted into an engineering degree program at Montana Tech. First priority goes to Environmental Engineering full-time degree-seeking students. To apply, students are asked to complete an application form and provide an essay about "What role should engineers play in protecting and improving the environment?"

“We’re proud to support education and the young people of Butte,” noted Dan Bersanti, Solvay’s plant manager. “This scholarship program enables us to do both, while working with an outstanding institution like Montana Tech. We are thrilled to award the scholarship to Jacob Bentley.”
