Tullow Oil, Africa’s largest independent oil firm, has announced that from 2012 onwards it would give scholarships to 50 young talented Ghanaians annually to study postgraduate programmes outside the country. Out of the 50 people, 10 people in the coastal belt are expected to benefit from the scholarship annually.

This is part of the Tullow Group Scholarship Scheme which aims at providing 110 young talented Africans annually in its operational countries to study in leading universities in the United Kingdom. The scholarship scheme will be allocated to countries including Ghana, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Gabon, Mauritius, Cote d’ivoire and Bangladesh.

The scholarship scheme covers courses include: Geosciences (Geophysics, Geology); engineering; marines sciences; environment and forestry management; and hospital and tourism management. The scheme will be implemented by the British Council which has over 40 years experience in the area of the scholarship implementations.

Speaking at the launch of the scholarship scheme in Accra, the Vice President of External Affairs and CSR, Ms Rosalind Kainyah added that scholarship would cover tuition and thesis fees, stipend, and travel costs.

She told the well-attended gathering that: “We have already started with a pilot phase which commenced in Ghana in September 2011. This pilot scheme supported 24 Ghanaians from the public sector with scholarships to pursue various studies to Masters Level with leading universities in the United Kingdom”.

Ms Kainyah was quick to disclose that this year 50 scholarship awards from the Tullow Group Scholarship Scheme are available for Ghanaians through a competitive process, including all members of the public who meet the set criteria.

She stressed that: “We are committed to being socially responsible, to managing the environment that we operate in, to looking after our staff and to being a good Company”.

According to her, we want to ensure that the success of the oil and gas industry brings real, lasting benefits to the people and economies of the countries in which we operate.

The Minister of Energy, Dr Joe Oteng-Adjei who performed the launch appealed to beneficiaries of the scheme to return home after their studies in the UK.

He emphasized that; “We will do everything possible to ensure that those who benefit from the scholarship scheme return home to help build the country”.

The Group Chief Executive Officer of Tullow Oil Plc, Aidan Heavey in a short message said: “the Scholarship scheme is something that we believe in”.

The Director of the British Council, Moses Anibaba stated that: “British Council’s role in the scheme is clear. We will manage the recruitment and selection of the candidates according to the criteria we have agreed with Tullow.”

The criteria have been designed to achieve the objective of the scheme of reducing skill gaps and ensuring that most deserving candidates are successful, he indicated.
