For the last four years, the International Pipe Line & Offshore Contractors Association (IPLOCA) has awarded 20 scholarships valued at $4500 each to help members of the next generation pursue their chosen fields of study. Since its inception, the programme has assisted the children and grandchildren of employees of regular or associate members of IPLOCA who plan to continue their education in college, university or vocational school programmes. Applications for 2020 are now open.
As in previous years, the children and grandchildren of RSK employees are eligible to apply to the scholarship programme through RSK’s associate membership with IPLOCA. Applicants do not have to be studying anything related to pipelines to qualify.
