Guardian Industries Corp. and its U.S. subsidiaries eased some college planning worries for 20 students throughout the U.S. by recognizing their hard work and academic achievement with scholarship dollars through the Guardian Industries Educational Foundation (GIEF).

Winners represent all of Guardian’s businesses, including Guardian Glass, SRG Global and Guardian Building Products, as well as the corporate office.

“We believe a good education helps set a solid foundation for opportunity and future success,” says Ron Vaupel, president and CEO, Guardian Industries Corp. “Our scholarship winners have worked very hard to have the opportunity to continue their education and we are pleased that we can play a role in helping them achieve their goals.”

The late William Davidson, former president and CEO of Guardian Industries Corp., established the Guardian scholarship program to encourage and assist children of Guardian employees in their pursuit of higher education. The scholarships pay up to $4,000 a year and are renewable for up to three years for a total award of $16,000.

GIEF selected the winners based on recommendations by International Scholarship and Tuition Services, Inc., an independent service organization. Applicants were evaluated based on high school or college academic record, extracurricular activities, leadership quality and the SAT and ACT scores of the applicant.

Since 1986, when the foundation began awarding scholarships, over 1200 students have received more than $15 million in funds.
