Main Document

PRIDE Industries has established an annual $2,500 scholarship available through The University of Texas at El Paso beginning in the fall of 2010 and continuing for a minimum of four years.

The scholarship program is open to students with disabilities who meet certain academic criteria and have employment aspirations that are supported by higher learning.

PRIDE Industries is a not-for-profit organization delivering manufacturing and service solutions to businesses and government agencies nationwide, while creating meaningful jobs for people with disabilities. Through training and employment, PRIDE helps people develop the technical and work skills needed to obtain and sustain employment, become contributing members of their communities, and to live successfully independently.

"We are grateful that PRIDE Industries has established this annual scholarship which will provide much-needed support for the students we serve," said Audrey Price, UTEP's Assistant Vice President for Institutional Advancement.

Since Oct. 1, 2007, California-based PRIDE Industries has been providing facilities services at Fort Bliss, employing more than 140 individuals. PRIDE also maintains an Employment Services office in El Paso that provides support and placement services to people with disabilities in the community. Working in partnership with state agencies, other local nonprofits and the business community, the company helps local individuals with disabilities overcome employment challenges and open new doors of opportunity.

PRIDE's collaboration with local organizations such as the Greater El Paso Chamber of Commerce, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) enables successful partnerships and programs that enhance the lives of El Pasoans living with disabilities.

"It is a privilege for PRIDE to participate in a scholarship program serving people with disabilities attending UTEP," said Michael Ziegler, President and Chief Executive Officer, PRIDE Industries. "We are honored to be a part of the local community, and proud to offer this support."
