The Lafayette chapter of the American Association of Drilling Engineers (AADE), in an ongoing effort to invest in the future of the oil and gas industry, has awarded US$15,000 in scholarship funding to engineering students at the University of Louisiana (UL) at Lafayette.
AADE recently awarded an additional $7500 in scholarships to cover spring 2016 educational costs for three UL students who achieved much success after being chosen as AADE’s fall 2015 honorees.
Andrew Trosclair, Kerry Marlett and Kobie Renard were each awarded $2,500 scholarships for both the fall and spring semesters.
All student applications are thoroughly reviewed by a scholarship committee and finalists are interviewed by committee representatives before being selected.
“These deserving students are the future of the oil and gas industry, and we expect to see them making huge contributions to our industry in the near future. Congratulations to these students for being selected as our fall/spring UL honorees,” said Alden Sonnier, president of the AADE Lafayette Chapter.
