API-Delta Chapter Scholarship Donation Request

The API Delta Chapter announces the initiation of a dedicated scholarship fund for the 2018 budget year (tentatively to be continued in future years).  Over the last five years the Delta Chapter has given out almost $100,000 in scholarship funds for college students pursuing STEM degrees.  Due to current budget pressures (largely associated with the industry downturn in South Louisiana) future scholarship support at this level by the API Delta Chapter is in jeopardy.

Corporate sponsors - Please consider a direct donation to this fund - in particular, we are soliciting corporate support.  Repeat corporate donors will receive special recognition in the future.

Individual donations - Even smaller individual amount of $25, $50, etc. will help!

As a non-profit 501c3 organization, your donation is tax deductible.
 
Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Paul K. Wieg
API-Delta Chairman
