The Gas Compressor Association (GCA) is offering up to five US$2000 scholarships available to interns, employees, spouses of employees, or children of employees of GCA member companies. The scholarships will be awarded for enrollment in a 1-year certificate or a 2-year associate degree program in gas compression, oil and gas technology, or a closely related oil and gas program at a GCA partner college. GCA partner colleges currently include Lackawanna College, OSU Institute of Technology, Panola College, San Juan College, and Western Wyoming Community College.
The scholarship program is aimed at helping to address the industry’s ongoing need for compressor operators and maintenance technicians, while also benefiting employees of GCA member companies and GCA’s partner colleges.
The employee associated with each applicant must be actively employed with a GCA member company in good standing at the time of application. A list of current GCA member companies can be found at www.gascompressor.org/gca-members.
Completed applications, along with the applicant’s high school transcript (if for the first year of a program) or college transcript (if for the second year of a program), must be submitted no later than July 31, 2019.
