Savannah River Mission Completion Awards $68,000 in Family Scholarships

AIKEN, S.C. (April 18, 2024) – 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 26.


SRMC awarded scholarships to 17 students attending either four-year institutions or technical schools.


Dr. Dave Olson, SRMC President and Program Manager, said SRMC appreciates the hard work and dedication of its employees, and the family scholarship program is one way for the company to show our appreciation by providing financial assistance to their children that are pursuing a higher education.


“This program is highly anticipated each year by SRMC parents with children preparing to enter college,” Olson said. “My favorite part of the process is its culmination, the moment that I am face-to-face with the recipients witnessing their enthusiasm and talking to them about their promising futures as their proud parents stand at their sides. It’s very heartwarming.”
