PVE Awards Scholarships

The Scholarship Committee offers limited financial assistance with scholarship grants to selected PVE employees seeking certificates of completion, credentials, or degrees.

Since 2004, we have awarded 89 scholarships totaling about $115,800. Grants are made twice a year, once for the spring term and once for the fall term. We at PVE feel fortunate to have a wonderful group of employees who demonstrate a great work ethic and certainly make our lives easier.
