The Petroleum Services Association of Canada (PSAC), through its Education Fund program, is providing scholarships for students pursuing post-secondary education for those students connected to PSAC Regular Member companies as well as students at technical colleges enrolled in petroleum-related or trades programs, especially those who would potentially be interested in a career in the petroleum services sector.
The PSAC Education Fund directs resources to Canadian students to create awareness of and help develop a potential long-term labour pool for the upstream service, supply and manufacturing sector of the oil and gas industry.
Currently, the fund awards five PSAC Regular Membership Scholarships of $1,500 to PSAC Regular Member company employees or their children, and one PSAC Roger Soucy Legacy Scholarship Funded by KPMG, worth $2,500, to a child of a PSAC Regular Member company employee who is heavily involved in the community and pursuing an education in a petroleum or trades related program.
The Fund also supports scholarships for students at technical schools in petroleum-related and trades programs at Northern Lights College (BC), Keyano College, NAIT and SAIT Polytechnic (Alberta), and Saskatchewan Polytechnic (Saskatchewan).
Since its inception, the Fund has awarded over $320,000 in scholarships and grants to deserving recipients.
