The Daily Jeffersonian — The Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program recently awarded scholarships to 54 students representing 30 Ohio counties, 20 colleges and more than a dozen energy-related majors.
“It’s encouraging to see so many talented young people excited to work in the energy industry,” said Greg Mason, OOGEEP’s interim executive director. “These students are our future leaders, and we are eager to see the innovative solutions and new perspectives they bring.”
OOGEEP’s scholarship awards are reserved for Ohio residents or students enrolled in a college or technical college program within the state.
Guernsey County scholarships recipients included Koby Berger of Cambridge, a junior at Marietta College studying petroleum engineering, and Carter Streiff of Salesville, a senior studying mechanical engineering at Ohio University.
Students submitted multiple letters of recommendation and a written essay describing their personal career goals and particular interest in the field. Each $1,000 scholarship renews annually over a four-year period.
Since its inception in 2007, the OOGEEP scholarship program has provided more than 500 scholarships to students from more than 60 Ohio counties attending 52 colleges and universities in the state.
