Diversity Scholarship Program

Dominion is committed to creating and reinforcing an inclusive, creative and productive environment in which each employee feels accepted, respected and believes it is possible to achieve his or her fullest potential. With that in mind, we are pleased to offer the Dominion Diversity Scholarship Program.

This program is open to students enrolled full-time in a field of study mutually beneficial to the company and the individual. This program assists students in achieving their fullest potential by providing a $5,000 scholarship and a paid summer internship. These paid internships allow students to develop their skills by working side-by-side with our professionals, learning new skills and sampling new technologies involved in the energy industry.
