The Tullow Group Scholarship Scheme

The Tullow Group Scholarship Scheme 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.

The Scheme is part of Tullow’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme (referred to as Social Enterprise (SE)) which aims to contribute to long-term socio-economic development in countries where we operate.

Scholarship applications are typically open from January every year.
