IPLOCA Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

The International Pipe Line & Offshore Contractors Association (IPLOCA) has established a scholarship program to assist children and grandchildren of employees of regular or associate members of IPLOCA who plan to continue their education in college, university, or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an bona fide institution of the student’s choice.

The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

Applicants to the IPLOCA Scholarship Program must be:

  • Be eligible* children or grandchildren, age 26 and under, of full-time or part-time (where required by country specific regulations) employees of Regular or Associate members of IPLOCA as of the application deadline.
    *Eligible children are defined as biological, step- or adopted children living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • Be students in their final year of upper or higher secondary school or be current technical or university level students.
  • Plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at a bona fide college, university, vocational-technical or trade school for the entire upcoming academic year.

Award Amounts
Up to 10 awards of $4,500 will be granted. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Only one child/grandchild of the IPLOCA member can receive the award each year.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Work experience
  • A statement of career and educational goals and objectives
  • An online recommendation.

Financial need is not considered.

Scholarship America will select finalists and send to IPLOCA to select the award recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Applicants will be notified in April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of IPLOCA. Payments will be mailed or wired to the student recipients in August.
