MADISON – High school seniors can apply for scholarships that two North Alabama companies are offering.

The eighth annual Pro-Air, Pro-Earth Scholarship for $2,000 requires only “a few simple requirements and definition of a Pro-Earth person,” Pro-Air Services Inc. Vice President Jason Putman said. Past winners were students in Florence and at Lexington, Grissom, Bob Jones and Decatur high schools.

Pro-Air, Services is a veteran-owned company.

Applicants must plan to attend a technical, two- or four-year college after graduation. The student must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and/or a minimum score of 24 on ACT or 1650 on SAT. An essay must define a Pro-Earth person.

Another scholarship opportunity, the 2016 Logistics and Transportation Career Scholarship, is available with Redstone-Huntsville Chapter Startup Group (RSH Group), an informal association of local members of the National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA). The winner will receive an award of $500 plus a one-year student membership in NDTA.
