Huntsman Corporation awarded 16 students from Spring Independent School District (SISD) with scholarships related to science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) or business, and six more SISD students with Career and Technical Education (CTE) scholarships — a total financial commitment of $327,500 over the next four years.
“From our inception as a company, a strong spirit of giving has always been a part of who we are,” said Peter Huntsman, Chairman, President and CEO. “While that has taken many different forms over the years, providing educational opportunities to students who have demonstrated a desire to build a bright future is always a smart investment for generations to come.”
Applications for the Huntsman Scholarship Program were evaluated on grade point averages, class rank, academic achievement, leadership, career essay, and letters of recommendation. The STEM/business-related scholarship program provides recipients with $20,000 — $5,000 per year — for attending an accredited college or university and majoring in STEM or business-related fields. It is renewable for up to four years by maintaining a 3.0-grade point average. The CTE scholarship awards $1,250 to pursue a level I/II certificate or associate degree in STEM; transportation, distribution, and logistics; manufacturing; or energy.
The company launched the Huntsman Scholarship Program in 2021 with the STEM/business scholarships and expanded it this year to include the CTE program.
