The wider SUT Houston programme
This year SUT Houston will again be offering three $5,000 undergraduate scholarships and a $10,000 graduate scholarship. FMC has joined Fugro GEOS in sponsoring additional $5,000 undergraduate scholarships administered on their behalf by SUT Houston.

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.
How to apply

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. It is urging organizations interested in providing a graduate or undergraduate scholarship to go to www.suthouston.com
