She tells The Big Z the scholarships are good at any two or four-year institution of their choosing.  Scholarship winners are: Cameron Foust from EA / WR High School, Chase Langendorf from Metro-East Lutheran High School, Shane Nichols from Marquette Catholic High School, and Chase Zezoff from Granite City High School.  All are children of Phillips 66 employees.
