This year SUT Houston will again be offering three $5,000 undergraduate scholarships and a $10,000 graduate scholarship. In addition, Fugro GEOS will also be sponsoring a $5,000 to an undergraduate scholarship administered by the SUT on their behalf.
Applicants are encouraged and welcomed from the fields of marine science, technology and engineering or mainline science and engineering courses where students can demonstrate an interest in pursuing a career in the marine field or a marine application for their studies. Undergraduate students must have completed at least one year of full-time study, and must be enrolled full time while receiving the scholarship. Graduate students must also be enrolled in full time graduate study. Applicants can be students of any nationality in full-time study at any accredited college or university within the United States.
Full details of how to apply for a scholarship and further information about SUT Houston can be found at www.SUTHouston.com. The deadline for application is June 15, 2006. The scholarships will be awarded for academic year 2006-07.
SUT Houston is also eager to expand the scholarship program, in particular through the administration of scholarship funds from industry sponsors, like Fugro GEOS. During this time of intense personnel shortages for the offshore industry, the SUT scholarship program offers sponsor organizations positive exposure to the academic sector and an opportunity to choose possible future employees, without draining scarce administrative resources. If your organization is interested in providing a graduate or undergraduate scholarship, please see our website www.SUTHouston.com and/or contact Kathleen Venable – SUT Administrator (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
SUT Houston and Fugro GEOS look forward to continue providing support and promotion of the education of future subsea engineering and marine science professionals.
