WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. – June 26, 2014 – The Account Control Technology Foundation (herein ACT Foundation), a non-profit, charitable foundation established by the founders of Account Control Technology, Inc. (ACT), is pleased to announce the 50 winners of its $1,000 college scholarships for 2014. Winners were selected from a total of 488 applications for the Foundation’s two programs.

“The pool of applicants for the Foundation programs was very strong this year, and several winners were high school valedictorians,” said Dale Van Dellen, Chairman of ACT and the ACT Foundation. “I am pleased the Foundation is able to help these future leaders further their educations, which will be so important for their ongoing success.”

The ACT Cares Community Scholarship Program is for graduating high school seniors from the communities surrounding ACT’s offices, including Kern and Los Angeles counties in California; Hamilton and Warren counties in Ohio; and Dallas, Denton, Collin, and Tom Green counties in Texas.
