BASF Awards $25,000 in Scholarships and Internship Opportunities to Local Students

Originally posted on BASF.com

BASF is awarding $25,000 in college scholarships to three local students to support their pursuit of careers in chemical manufacturing. In addition to paying the tuition and fees for the students to attend Coastal Alabama Community College (CACC), BASF is also providing them with internship positions at its McIntosh site this summer to participate in the Process Technology Program.

As part of its workforce development efforts, BASF’s McIntosh site offers a two-year scholarship annually for students participating in the chemical process technology program at CACC. Scholarships are awarded based on a student’s academic accomplishment, testing and an interview.

“Connecting students in our community with workforce development opportunities in the chemical industry is our way to encourage local students to remain in the area while pursuing promising careers,” said Jason Slinkard, Site Director of BASF in McIntosh. “BASF’s scholarship program allows our local students to gain valuable learning and hands-on experiences in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.”

BASF awarded Brandon Holston and Mackensie Miller, both graduates of Millry High School, a $10,000 scholarship each to put toward their studies in chemical process technology. Tanner Singleton received approximately $5,000 from BASF to support his second year in the chemical process technology program at CACC.

During their summer internships at BASF’s McIntosh site, the students will participate in the process technology program.
