College students receive more than $20,000 from the people of Oklahoma Oil & Natural Gas

Students at state universities have been awarded more than $205,000 in scholarships from the people of Oklahoma Oil & Natural Gas for the 2020-2021 academic year.

The scholarship recipients, part of the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board (OERB) Petroleum Scholar Program, were selected through an application process based on their outstanding grades and work ethic. They include freshmen through seniors majoring in petroleum engineering, geosciences or energy management at the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University and the University of Tulsa. Since 2005, the people of Oklahoma Oil & Natural Gas have provided nearly $5 million in scholarships. The goal of the program is to keep these future leaders in our state.

“These scholarships are only possible through the voluntary financial support of Oklahoma’s oil and natural gas producers and royalty owners,” Mindy Stitt, OERB Executive Director, said. “Education is a core part of the OERB’s mission and we remain committed to investing in the future of Oklahoma.”

Students can apply during each year of undergraduate work. The scholarship amount increases annually, with a $5,000 maximum scholarship for seniors. OERB Petroleum Scholars also receive exclusive access to industry networking events and educational activities. The scholarship application period for the 2021-2022 school year will be opened on November 1. For a list of criteria and to apply online, visit oerb.com/scholarships.

The OERB is funded by the people of Oklahoma Oil & Natural Gas through a voluntary one-tenth of 1 percent assessment on oil and natural gas production. Since 1993, the agency’s purpose is to conduct environmental restoration of abandoned well sites and to educate Oklahomans about the importance of the petroleum industry.
