Pest Management Foundation Announces Five New Endowed Scholarships
The Pest Management Foundation has five new scholarships as part of its new endowed scholarship program.
First announced at PestWorld 2022 in Boston, the Foundation’s endowed scholarship program allows donors to establish an endowed scholarship that can be custom-named for individuals, companies, or organizations. Criteria for scholarship awards are flexible and also determined by the donor. The minimum gift to establish an endowed scholarship is $25,000 and gifts may be paid all at once, or over a five-year period.
The new scholarships are:
