BASF Awards $35,000 to Students Pursuing Chemical Manufacturing

BASF ranked No. 23 on the Fair360 2023 Top 50 Companies for Diversity list.


BASF has awarded $30,000 in college scholarships to three students and $5,000 to one intern to help them pursue careers in chemical manufacturing.

The $30,000 funding will go to James Brannon Bayles, James Maddux Everett and Sean Morris, covering the tuition and fees for these students to attend Coastal Alabama Community College (CACC).

In addition to the scholarships, the students will also have the opportunity to join an eight-week internship opportunity at BASF’s McIntosh site this summer to participate in the Process Technology Program.

Doug Lundy, 2022 scholarship winner and intern, will participate again in the eight-week internship program this summer.

“Our goal is to connect students in our community with opportunities in the chemical industry,” said Marcus Pezent, Operations Americas and Site Director of BASF’s McIntosh site. “BASF’s scholarship program offers valuable, hands-on learning experiences for these students and helps prepare them as they enter the workforce.”

Awardees were chosen based on academic accomplishments, testing and an interview.
