Phillips 66 Shield Scholars

Howdy ASME members,

The Phillips 66 SHIELD Scholar 2017-2018 application cycle started this month and will end Tuesday February 28th.  I’ve attached two documents that provide information on the scholarship program that I was hoping you could share through ASME. 
Applying is easy, students use the website http://p66shieldscholar.jobs/ and follow the instructions.   This is a really good program because in addition to the scholarship students also get paired with a mentor and get to participate in enrichment activities. 
Best Regards,
Curtis Garner
