    The oil and gas industry supports more than 72,000 jobs in the state, but finding a qualified, skilled and knowledgeable workforce continues to be a challenge. To help students interested in the energy industry pursue a degree, the North Dakota Petroleum Foundation offers two scholarship programs to assist with tuition costs.

    Al Golden Scholarship

    The Al Golden Scholarship awards up to nine individual $2,000 scholarships each year to undergraduates pursuing an energy-related degree. Applications open up in January and are due in April.


    Fort Berthold Energy Partnership Scholarship

    The North Dakota Petroleum Foundation (NDPF) has partnered with Missouri River Resources, Baker Consulting, and J & J Rentals to create the Fort Berthold Energy Partners scholarship program for deserving enrolled members of the MHA Nation pursuing an education and/or career in energy. This scholarship will offer a $2,000 scholarship for up to two qualifying individuals in its inaugural year. High school students graduating or current college students may apply.
