Bayway Community Advisory Panel (CAP) Scholarship

January 24, 2013

The Bayway Community Advisory Panel (CAP) is a committee of community representatives from Linden, Rahway, Elizabeth and Staten Island including neighbors, educators, retirees, public officials, emergency responders, and environmentalists who attend monthly meetings that serve as a forum for dialogue between the community and company representatives from Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery, DuPont, Infineum USA L.P., and NAES/Linden Cogen Technologies.

Objectives of the CAP include:
-          Addressing the community’s safety, health, environmental, educational and civic issues, as well as perceptions and expectations
-          Disseminating factual information to the community in an unbiased manner
-          Discussing key company issues
-          Discussing and make recommendations on controversial matters

For the year 2014, the Bayway CAP has elected to offer High School Seniors who are residents of Linden, Rahway, Elizabeth, and Staten Island the opportunity to be awarded a municipality scholarship. A total of four (4) scholarships will be awarded - one $1,000 scholarship for each of the four municipalities. This scholarship is open to candidates who will be pursuing a college education in the Industrial, Process Technology, or Engineering fields.
