Applications Being Accepted for $2,000 Scholarship to Women in STEM Programs

TUCSON, AZ – Polymer Chemistry Innovations (PCI), a manufacturer of novel polymers and monomers, is awarding one female student $2,000 towards her education in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM) higher education program.

Students interested in applying for this annual scholarship should visit their scholarship webpage.

This is Polymer Chemistry’s inaugural scholarship award.

“Whether it’s while attending a trade show or conference, or working in collaboration with another company, we often find that the female representatives of PCI are some of the only women at the table. We hope to play a part in fixing this imbalance by supporting the STEM education of women through this scholarship,” says Carly Gordon, PCI’s executive director.

Students who have an academic or personal interest in the STEM field are encouraged to apply. The deadline to apply is September 15, 2020.

About Polymer Chemistry Innovations
Polymer Chemistry Innovations began in 1990, when the founder, Dr. Bernard Gordon III, Ph,D,, was working as a professor of polymer science at Penn State University. He saw an opportunity to capitalize on a niche market by developing a novel process of producing poly(2-ethyl-2-oxazoline), later trade named Aquazol, while remaining cost effective for customers. This family-owned company is now into its second generation of operations. For information about Polymer Chemistry Innovations, please visit www.polychemistry.com.
