Today’s students are tomorrow’s energy workforce…

For the second year, the Governor’s Office of Energy Development is partnering with Chevron to award scholarships to high school students who plan to pursue a science, technology, engineering or math related course of study at a Utah institute of higher education.

This year, the partnership is expanding to award a total of ten scholarships across $30,000 to include five students who plan to pursue an energy and minerals career by obtaining a vocational license, certificate, or skill training from a Utah Technical College.

“We were inspired by last year’s applicants and we look forward to seeing even more students demonstrate their creativity and knowledge this year,” said Mitra Kashanchi, Chevron’s Salt Lake Refinery General Manager.

The Utah Energy Workforce Scholarship asks students to submit a short documentary-style video that demonstrates a unique perspective and passion for the state’s energy industry and an essay discussing educational goals and interest in STEM and working in the energy sector.

Whether you are an aspiring filmmaker or starting from scratch, the Governor’s Office of Energy Development provides students with a beginner’s guide to filmmaking that offers instructions on how to craft a five-minute film by simply using a phone. The videos are judged on their creativity, educational quality and engaging concept.

All applications must be received by April 1, 2018.
