It is time for the Association of International Petroleum Negotiators (AIPN) annual Student Writing Competition and Student Scholarship Program.
The prize for the winners of the AIPN Student Writing Competition includes registration, travel and accommodations for the AIPN International Conference, which will be held this year at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Banff, Alberta, Canada, on September 13-16, 2011.
For the AIPN Scholarship Program, AIPN will be underwriting eight scholarships in the amount of US $5,000 each, which will be awarded to up to eight students for the academic semester beginning in Fall 2011. Applicants must apply by June 1, 2011. The scholarships will be disbursed over the Fall Semester 2011 and Spring semester 2012 ($2,500 each semester). The funds will be paid directly to the recipient’s college or university to offset tuition. Previous AIPN Scholarship winners are not eligible to participate.
These are just two examples of the AIPN’s efforts to encouage student interest in the international energy industry. Students can join the AIPN for only $25 per year. The on-line application for membership in the AIPN can be found at https://www.aipn.org/StudentMembershipInfo.aspx.
