Portable Sanitation Association International has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, 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. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the PSAI Scholarship Program must be:

  • High school seniors or undergraduates who plan to enroll or are currently enrolled in a full-time undergraduate program at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school. Students working full-time at a PSAI member company and attending school part-time (minimum of 6 credits per semester) are eligible to apply.
