Turner Pest Control 2017 Scholarship

Supporting the communities we share with you.

From contributions and sponsorships, to the personal participation of our team members in local charitable events, Turner Pest Control is strongly committed to supporting efforts to make our community a great place to live and work.

With our second annual scholarship program, we’re highlighting the importance of community service and generating awareness for our Orlando pest control location. This year, we are offering a scholarship award to a deserving student in the U.S. who has demonstrated his or her commitment to community service, and who has been accepted to a university, college or trade school and submits the winning entry in an essay competition. The scholarship is open to all U.S. residents, not just those in the Orlando area. A scholarship in the amount of $1,500 will be awarded on July 15, 2017.

The deadline for entry is June 1, 2017. All entrants must submit a 500-word essay about their personal experiences with community or volunteer service, how that service impacted the quality of life in their communities, and any plans for their community service participation in the future.

Selection of a scholarship winner will be based on his or her community service as described in the essay; academic achievement, including a minimum 2.5 GPA; and recommendations from employers and/or school officials.
