Dayton, Ohio - February 20, 2017 - The Dayton Power and Light Company (DP&L), a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE:AES), and Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio (Vectren), are offering three scholarships to high school seniors who plan to work in the energy industry.
Each $1,000 scholarship will be granted for college tuition and expenses to deserving students who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, knowledge and an interest in continuing their studies by pursuing an energy-related career.
