The Noia-Hibernia Scholarship Fund


Scholarship History

1997 was a big year for the oil & gas industry: the Hibernia project was successfully completed, hauled out to sea, and started drawing oil.  The Noia-Hibernia Scholarship Fund was established to commemorate that landmark year.  Presented annually, and designed to foster the bright minds that will shape the future of our industry, the award provides $1,000 to a graduating high school student in Newfoundland and Labrador who is entering post-secondary studies with the intention of pursuing a petroleum-related career. Applications are reviewed by Noia’s selection committee and the award is presented to the applicant who best meets the academic and extra-curricular criteria.


Application Process

The application deadline for the 2017 scholarship program closed August 25, 2017. The recipient will be announced at Noia's Fall Seminar on November 15.

Students graduating from high school in June 2018 and pursuing post-secondary petroleum industry-related studies in the 2018-2019 academic year are eligible to apply for the 2018 scholarship. The 2018 application form will be available in mid-2018.
