The Tullow Group Scholarship Scheme (TGSS) aims to build capacity in areas where Tullow’s host countries experience significant skills gaps, especially, but not exclusively, around these countries’ oil and gas industries. It is aligned with Tullow’s aim of supporting long-term socio-economic development in countries where it operates.
The Tullow Group Scholarships are vocational, technical and postgraduate scholarships available to individuals in Tullow’s operating countries in Africa and South America, and are entirely managed by British Council.
Scholarships are available to those who are committed to making a contribution to their country’s development. The Scheme gives candidates a chance to receive a high standard of education from locally and internationally recognised institutions, which can then be applied in the scholar’s home country.

- International Postgraduate Scholarships (Masters and Postgraduate diploma)
