Chevron Langley Veteran’s Scholarship Launched

Program designed to assist veterans pursuing post-secondary education

(VACAVILLE, Calif.) — The Chevron Langley Scholarship Veteran’s Scholarship program launched today as an effort to assist United States veterans who wish to pursue a post-secondary education. The program offered by the Northern California PGA Foundation, sponsored by the Chevron Veteran’s Network,  helps provide veterans a way to pursue study opportunities where financial need is a factor.

Scholarship awards will range from $2,500 to $5,000 annually and may be eligible for renewal. The deadline to submit scholarship applications is Dec. 15.

“Teaming with Chevron, the Northern California PGA Foundation is extremely proud to support our veterans,” said Nancy Maul, Managing Director of the NCPGA Foundation. “For some of the veterans, these scholarships can mean the difference between pursuing a post-secondary education and not having the financial means to do so. Considering their incredible service to our country, it’s imperative to help them secure an education and succeed in their next career.”

Glenn Weckerlin, Director of University Partnerships & Association Relations for Chevron, said his company shares the same level of pride in being involved with the veteran’s scholarship program.

“It’s an honor to be part of a program that will allow those who have served to follow in the footsteps of Jim Langley, who served his country and community with such grace and dignity,” Weckerlin added.

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, an essay, and an outside recommendation. Once scholarship recipients are selected, financial data is assessed to determine the amount of each award.
