NDPC scholarship apps due April 1
Bismarck, N.D. – The North Dakota Petroleum Council (NDPC) is seeking applicants for the Al Golden Memorial Scholarship program, which will provide a $2,000 scholarship to nine qualified college students pursuing a post-secondary education in geology, engineering, processing plant technology, science, technical skills or other careers related to the oil and gas industry. The application period will remain open until April 1.

“The state has continued to experience a shortage of qualified workers within the energy industry. As activity picks up and more of our veteran workers near retirement, this shortage will only become more pronounced,” said Ron Ness, NDPC president. “This scholarship will help ensure the next generation of energy workers by providing the necessary resources that will allow them to obtain a degree and pursue a rewarding career in one of North Dakota’s largest industries.”
