THE TOUR TEAM wants to cultivate innovation and offer active learning environments to PCI’s younger members—and what better way to do that than by offering a limited number of Tour scholarships to Gen Next Leaders? The scholarship will cover the registration fee, and we ask the employers to pick up travel expenses and hotel charges.

We are looking for plant personnel with three to five years’ experience working in the same facility, who want to learn and become leaders within their organizations and, ultimately, our industry as a whole.

We are asking the scholarship applicants to email a 200-word essay or a two-minute video on why they want to attend and what they hope to take away from the event. All submissions must be sent directly to by March 15th. We will advise the winners by March 29th. If you have any questions, email us at
