2016 Westinghouse Family Scholarship Program
Fifteen high school graduates were recognized recently during the 2016 Westinghouse Family Scholarship breakfast. A total of $72,000 was awarded to eligible, dependent children of Westinghouse employees.
For more than 30 years, Westinghouse has been providing scholarships to the sons and daughters of our U.S.-based employees. Since its inception, Westinghouse has awarded more than 450 scholarships totaling more than $2.1 million for students as they pursue higher education. The scholarships are awarded based on the winner’s leadership, scholastic aptitude and achievements including SAT scores, extra-curricular activities, work experience, scholastic and non-scholastic awards and written communication skills.
