CHESTER, PA — Covanta announced it has once again contributed to The Chester Environmental Partnership scholarship program providing $20,000 worth of financial support for deserving students.

Each year for the last 15 years, the Chester Environmental Partnership (CEP), an organization committed to improving the environment in Chester and surrounding communities as they build for the future, awards monetary scholarships to deserving local high school and college students to assist in their continued education. Eight students were selected to receive scholarships for the 2022 program. The students are attending Lincoln University of Pennsylvania, Neumann, Rutgers, Howard, Drexel, and Alvernia Universities.

“Without Covanta’s contributions to the CEP scholarship fund our students would not be able to meet the financial demands of higher education,” stated Dr. Horace Strand, Chairman of the CEP. “The scholarship, originally created by Covanta, garners overwhelming appreciation from both parents and students who are incredibly grateful, and sometimes tearful, to think that in their own community there is an opportunity like this available.”

“Covanta is proud to work with the CEP to recognize the achievements of these hardworking students and support their educational ambitions in a tangible way,” said Don Cammarata, Area Asset Manager for Covanta. “Investing in the educational future of Chester’s best and brightest is part and parcel to our mission of Protecting Tomorrow, especially in the communities in which we operate.”
