SPE Balikpapan Section dedicates more than one hundred million rupiah to scholarships and fellowships for undergraduate students pursuing degrees related to the oil and gas industry. Funding students through scholarships promotes the quantity and quality of entrants into our profession. This support also recognizes merit and provides financial assistance to those who otherwise might not be able to obtain a university education especially in Eastern Indonesia.
This year, the applicants have reached 73 candidates from 4 universities STT Migas Balikpapan, Universitas Hasanuddin, Institut Teknologi Kalimantan, and Universitas Pattimura.
Here are some testimonials from Last year SPE USP grantees:
"I am Andri Moh. Wahyu Laode is a child raised by a single parent, a mother. Tuition fees are very burdensome for my parent. especially since my hometown is quite far from where I study. With the SPE USP scholarship, my mother's expenses can be reduced and it makes use even more motivated to give my best. Being one of the SPE USP recipients gave me a lot of motivation and achievements. Starting from my improving soft skills and hard skills, as well as various achievements in both academic and non-academic. And of course, another one of my achievements is my ability to organize especially during my time at SPE. There is no most valuable achievement other than my contribution to SPE and to others that makes me a better person and can become a professional person.
I hope that the SPE Balikpapan Section with the SPE USP program can help more people who need money to study. And aLso, thank you to the SPE Balikpapan Section for the SPE USP program so that I can become a better person like today and can be better and better in the future, Amin."
