Tullow Group Scholarship Scheme

Wednesday, January 16, 2013
The Tullow Group Scholarship Scheme aims to build capacity in areas where Tullow’s host countries experience significant skills gaps, especially, but not exclusively, around their oil and gas industries.
The Scheme is aligned with Tullow’s aim of supporting long-term socio-economic development in countries where it operates.

Scholarships are available to those who are committed to making a contribution to their own country’s development. The Scheme gives candidates a chance to receive a high standard of education from internationally recognised institutions, which can then be applied in the scholar’s home country.
The Tullow Group Scholarships Scheme will cover the cost of full tuition fees plus additional expenses including travel.

Students from Ghana, Uganda, Gabon, Cote D’Ivoire, Kenya, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Mauritania, Congo Brazzaville, Mauritania, Suriname and French Guiana are eligible for the scheme, which has been developed by Tullow Oil and is managed by the British Council.
