AIKEN, S.C. (April 11, 2023) — Savannah River Mission Completion (SRMC), the Savannah River Site liquid waste contractor, has awarded 17 college scholarships to students who are children of SRMC employees.
Each of these high school seniors received a $4,000 scholarship. The winning applications were selected based on an essay submission, grade point average, and leadership and scholarship achievement. SRMC recognized the awardees at its annual family scholarship awards banquet on March 29.
