2013/2014 Tullow Group Scholarship Scheme for Africans.

 

The Tullow Group Scholarship Scheme aims to build capacity in areas where Tullow’s host countries (Kenya, Ghana, Uganda, Côte d’Ivoire, Gabon, Congo Brazzaville, Ethiopia, Mauritania, )experience significant skills gaps, especially, but not exclusively, around their oil and gas industries. The Scheme is aligned with Tullow’s aim of supporting long-term socio-economic development in countries where it operates.

Scholarships are available to those who are committed to making a contribution to their own country’s development. The Scheme gives candidates a chance to receive a high standard of education from internationally recognised institutions, which can then be applied in the scholar’s home country.

The Scheme is managed by the British Council, which has a great deal of experience in running similar programmes. Further details on eligibility and the application process can be found on the Tullow Group Scholarship website.
