Esso Angolan Scholars Program for Master’s Degrees in Geosciences in the U.S. and UK

Deadline: December 31, 2012

The Esso Angolan Scholars Program is a competitive scholarship that provides funding for students from Angola to pursue a Master's degree in the geosciences at a university in the United States or the United Kingdom. Through this unique scholarship opportunity administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE), ExxonMobil aims to contribute to the expansion of a creative, globally competent workforce in the country of Angola, with a primary focus on geosciences.

Finalists for the scholarship are invited to a two day short course event held in Houston, Texas. Short course attendees will develop business skills related to the energy industry and network with Angolan colleagues. Recipients will receive full tuition for the completion of a Master’s degree in the field of Geosciences. Some students may qualify for the opportunity to apply their skills through internships with ExxonMobil.

Candidates must be citizens of Angola and hold a Bachelor’s degree in Geosciences from a college or university in the United States or the United Kingdom. Applicants do not need to currently be residing in Angola, although they must demonstrate Angolan citizenship.
