IPLOCA Scholarship 2020: Applications now open

December 16, 2019

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.

Who is eligible?

Applicants to the IPLOCA Scholarship Programme must

  • be eligible* children or grandchildren, aged 26 years and under, of full-time or part-time (where required by country-specific regulations) employees of IPLOCA Regular or Associate Members as of the application deadline
  • be students in their final year of upper or higher secondary school or be current technical or university-level students
  • plan to enrol in full-time undergraduate study at a bona fide college, university, vocational-technical or trade school for the entire upcoming academic year.

*Eligible children are defined as biological, step- or adopted children living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.

IPLOCA invites eligible applicants to apply online at www.learnmore.scholarsapply.org/iploca/
