The Pipe Line Contractors Association (PLCA) Scholarship Foundation, a private foundation established by the PLCA, has established the C. Paul Evans PLCA Scholarship Program to assist children, stepchildren, or grandchildren of full-time non-bargaining unit employees of Regular or Associate Members of the PLCA. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited four-year college or university or graduate school of the student’s choice.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.
