Solvay USA Inc. Announces Scholarship Recipients


Solvay USA Inc., formerly Rhodia Inc., has awarded their annual The Solvay USA Inc. Engineering for Environmental Protection Scholarship to Thomas Bolton of Butte Central High School and Levin Mullaney of Butte High School.

In 2001, Rhodia Inc. began awarding the scholarship to future Montana Tech students who share their commitment to the environment and who are pursuing a degree in engineering. Each year, at least one $2,000 scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior who has been accepted into an engineering degree program at Montana Tech. First priority goes to Environmental Engineering full-time degree-seeking students. To apply, students are asked to complete an application form and provide an essay about "What role should engineers play in protecting and improving the environment?"

“We’re proud to support education and the young people of Butte,” noted Dan Bersanti, Solvay’s plant manager. “This scholarship program enables us to do both, while working with an outstanding institution like Montana Tech. We are thrilled to award the scholarship to two very deserving students, Thomas Bolton and Levin Mullaney, who will excel at Montana Tech”.   “Receiving this scholarship shows that hard work and dedication really does pay off,” noted Bolton. “This will help me continue towards reaching my engineering goals at Montana Tech.”

“I am honored to be the recipient of The Solvay USA Inc. Engineering for Environmental Protection Scholarship,” explained Mullaney. “Like Solvay, engineers need to lead the charge in protecting and improving the environment. Attaining an engineering degree at Montana Tech will give me the tools to protect the environment that I enjoy so much. I feel privileged to be recognized by Solvay, and I am excited to be continuing my education at Montana Tech.”
