Fluor employees participated in a Fluor hosted reception Thursday, March 29 at Washington State University (WSU) Tri-Cities for incoming Chancellor Vicky Carwein, faculty, and staff. Fluor Foundation President Bob Fluor presented two checks to the university to fund programs at WSU Tri-Cities sponsored by Fluor. The first check was for $5,000 to support this summer's WSU Tri-Cities Science Camp.  The second check was for a Fluor scholarship in the amount of $6,000 -- $3,000 this fall and $3,000 in the fourth year for an incoming freshman. In addition at WSU Tri-Cities, Fluor will provide four internships: two for incoming freshman and two for participants in the Columbia Basin College Bridges Program for students attending CBC and planning to complete their four-year degrees at WSU Tri-Cities. Fluor also announced that the company will provide mentors as well. Another important donation program offered by the Fluor Foundation and discussed by Bob Fluor at the reception is the Foundation's dollar-for-dollar match for donations by Fluor employees to support academic programs at any eligible college, university, and technical school up to $5,000 per employee per year. This means, for example, that if 100 Fluor employees donate $1,000 each to WSU Tri-Cities, then the Foundation will donate its own $100,000 to the University. For more information on this program contact John Umbarger in Fluor Hanford's Community Programs office. Posted by Colleen Lane on
