Over the past few months, several organizations and businesses have generously donated a total of over $100,000 to Midland College (MC) for scholarships to be awarded to students enrolled in energy related courses and programs. These include donations from the Permian Basin International Oil Show (PBIOS), the Permian Basin Association of Pipeliners, Chevron, Chevron Retirees and Occidental Petroleum. 

“We are so appreciative of these scholarship donations,” said Erin Casey-Richardson, associate director of scholarships at Midland College. “They will be used for the 2019-2020 academic year to be awarded to students pursuing degrees and certificates in energy-related programs such as Engineering, Welding, Diesel Technology, Transportation Training and Energy Technology. Eligible students enrolled in these classes will receive between $2,000 and $3,000 each semester during the 2019/2020 academic year.”

MC officials explained that in addition to the programs listed above, some of the funds will be used for scholarships for short-term continuing education classes administered by the college’s Workforce Education Continuing Education department such as Risk Management courses that are taken by employees working in the energy industry.
