As part of their Act 13 Marcellus Shale Impact Fee distribution, Elk County is allocating funding annually to scholars from Elk County who will be attending college to earn a degree in the natural gas shale industry.
â€śWeâ€™re offering two $5,000 scholarships for students who will be attending college or trade school for oil and gas industry studies,â€ť Elk County Commissioner June Sorg said. â€śIt doesnâ€™t have to be a younger student, weâ€™re also accepting adults for that as well. We thought this would be a big help for our area and a good way to move forward with this Act 13 money.â€ť
