BP Offers Scholarships to Rawlins, Rock Springs Students

January 29, 2014 — High school seniors in Rock Springs and Rawlins have an opportunity to get some help in pursuing college degrees as a result of a new scholarship program from BP’s Wamsutter Operations Center.

The program is aimed at Rock Springs and Rawlins high school graduates who will major in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields or related vocational programs. It offers scholarships of $2,500 per year at the University of Wyoming or $5,000 per year at an accredited Wyoming community college or trade school -- up to a maximum of $10,000 for undergraduate study. Preference will be given to students pursuing studies in areas of demand in the energy industry.

“As a member of the community, we recognize the importance of a highly trained and educated workforce to our region and to the state of Wyoming,” says Tom Robinson, site manager of BP’s Wamsutter Operations Center. “We believe our scholarship program will provide enhanced opportunities for students from Rock Springs and Rawlins to pursue college degrees within our state.”

Scholarship recipients must be enrolled on a full-time basis (12 credit hours or more per semester) at UW, a community college or accredited trade school in Wyoming. Awards will be based upon information provided in the application, the applicant’s personal statement, academic performance, extracurricular activities, work experience, individual goals and demonstrated interest in the energy industry.

Interested students for the fall 2014 semester must apply by March 14.

For more information about the program, including an application, go online to or call (630) 428-2412.
