Encova Scholarship

In December 2015, the BrickStreet Foundation made a generous and transformational gift of $500,000 to endow the BrickStreet Scholars scholarship program (now the Encova Scholarship) through the Shepherd University Foundation. Since 2005, Encova (formerly BrickStreet Mutual Insurance Company) has been assisting West Virginia workers and employers by improving the medical and compensation benefits for workers who are injured on the job while reducing costs for employers. The Encova Scholarship will provide ten scholarships each year into perpetuity. Some of the awards are designated for the children or grandchildren of workers who have experienced work related injury or death, while others are designated for students whose parents or grandparents are Encova employees. Half of the scholarships will be awarded as general scholarships based on financial need and grades. If no students meet the Encova family relationship criteria, awards roll over to the general scholarship category, with special preference will be given to students majoring in math, nursing or education. Encova facilitates the award selection process through a scholarship committee made up of Encova employees and Shepherd University representatives.
