The annual Pella Rolscreen Foundation’s Sons and Daughters Scholarship Program recognizes outstanding high school graduates whose parents are Pella team members, and since its inception, almost 700 scholarships have been awarded. Selection criteria includes academics, school activities, community volunteerism and essay responses. Recipients attending four-year programs receive $8,000 and those attending two-year programs receive $1,500.
In April, the Pella Rolscreen Foundation awarded 41 college scholarships to exceptional students as part of the Sons and Daughters Scholarship Program. This year’s recipients represented company sites in Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan and Pennsylvania. The 41 recipients were selected by a panel of external judges from a talented group of applicants representing nearly 50 high schools across 12 states; seven of the recipients are first-generation college students.
