Precision Drilling Employees' Dependent Children Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: July 31, 2024 3:00 pm CT

Precision has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

This 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 Precision Drilling Employees’ Dependent Children Scholarship Program must be:

  • Be dependent* children, of full-time Precision employees in Canada or the United States as of the application deadline date.
  • High school seniors or graduates or in their final year of upper or higher secondary school, or be current postsecondary undergraduate, technical (vocational) or university level students.
  • Plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university or vocational, technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.

*Dependent children are defined as per Precision’s definition of a child for benefit purposes. Dependents of inactive, part-time, contract or temporary employees are not eligible.

For the purposes of this program “Precision” includes Precision Drilling Corporation, Precision Drilling Holdings Company, Precision Drilling Company LP and all their related, affiliated and subsidiary entities in Canada and the United States.

Award Information:

  • If selected as a recipient, students will receive an award in USD or CAN currency.

  • Honors
  • Work experience
  • Statement of career and educational goals and objectives
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
