Dow Corning Midland Plant – Community Support
Funding and support for
As a chemical manufacturing facility, the Midland Plant is interested in
supporting educational activities that encourage understanding of math and
science, particularly chemistry.
We believe quality education is critical to the future and well-being of
Dow Corning and our community.
To promote academic excellence and encourage student participation, the
Midland Plant provides monetary support through the Dow Corning
Foundation Donor Advised Funds to select Midland County programs that are
not directly supported by tax dollars and/or tuition.
We give priority to projects that:
Provide K-12 and college students with experiences and tools that will help
them understand the world of work and enhance their workforce readiness
(mentoring programs, science fairs and school-to-work activities)
Help local residents acquire job skills to enhance workforce readiness (job
skill training or mentoring programs focused on job retention)
The Midland Plant awards scholarships for math/science and the skilled
trades to Midland County high school seniors. For more information,
including an application form, please contact your high school guidance
|Giving example – Delta College Process Operators
In response to a growing need for skilled chemical process operators at
Dow Corning facilities in the area, the Dow Corning Midland Plant
donated equipment and provided expertise to help Delta College establish a chemical
process operators training program.
The program has been highly successful, with more than 89 percent of the
program's graduates receiving job offers, including opportunities for some to
work at the Dow Corning Midland Plant.
