The Energy Workforce & Technology Council’s Scholarship Program provides educational assistance to an employee, spouse, child or other legal dependent of an employee of an Energy Workforce Member Company, encouraging continued education past the high school level.
The scholarship program began in the 1970s to assist children of Member Companies in completing higher education. Since its inception, the program has awarded more than $4 million to help dependents of association members attend institutions of higher learning, earn undergraduate and advanced degrees, and launch successful professional careers.
Regional chapters, as well as the national organization, hold fundraising events to provide the scholarships.
Awards will be made to those entering or continuing an undergraduate degree, graduate degree or vocational program. The scholarship recipient is eligible for a maximum of four years as long as the minimum standards are maintained.
Energy Workforce is partnering with the Permian Basin Area Foundation to administer the scholarships. Applications will be accepted until March 31 at midnight. If you have questions, contact Sherri Heiting, Education Programs Officer, at [email protected] or call 432-617-3213.
