Whirlpool Sons & Daughters Scholarship winners

The Whirlpool Foundation today announced that it has awarded 30 scholarships to the students of Whirlpool Corporation employees through the Sons and Daughters College and Vocational Training Scholarship program. The scholarship program is in its 72nd year and has historically focused on traditional four-year colleges/universities. Beginning last year, the program was expanded to meet the post-secondary educational needs of students pursuing a vocational or technical career as well.

These scholarships celebrate the best and brightest among high school seniors across Whirlpool Corp. locations – including the company’s 10 U.S. manufacturing communities. The Whirlpool Foundation provides these scholarships through a competitive process in which children of more than 20,000 U.S. Whirlpool Corporation employees are eligible to apply.

“Each year we are honored to invest in the future of our employee’s children through the Sons & Daughters Scholarship Program,” said Deb O’Connor, managing director of the Whirlpool Foundation. “The scholarship has a real impact toward helping to pay for the education needed to start the career of their dreams.”
