PNDC College Scholarship Fund

As part of PNDC’s commitment to addressing our member companies’ workforce issues, in 2017 we created the PNDC College Scholarship Fund. PNDC recognizes the importance of higher education. We also recognize a college education is becoming increasingly unaffordable and that an educated workforce is key to the success of all PNDC member businesses.

PNDC will award at least two $3,500 scholarships annually, to children or dependents of PNDC member business employees. At least one scholarship will be awarded to a student attending a two-year college or trade school and one scholarship will be awarded to a student attending a four-year college or university, both in Oregon or Washington. (Preference will be given to those seeking careers that benefit the defense and security industry supply chain.)
