Future Leaders of America Scholarship
In 2011, Hilcorp established the Hilcorp Future Leaders of America Scholarship Fund with the vision of developing future leaders in the math and science fields. This fund provides scholarship opportunities to graduating seniors who excel in the subjects of math and science at selected high schools in Texas, Louisiana and Alaska.
The Hilcorp Future Leaders of America Scholarship Fund has awarded $580,000 in scholarships to 58 deserving students since its inception in 2011.
The Hilcorp Future Leaders scholarship helps those doing full-time undergraduate studies at a recognized university. An initial award of $2,500 is given to young people who meet the criteria; this award is renewable for up to three consecutive years for a total of $10,000. This scholarship is administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation and its Scholarship Advisory Committee.
Hilcorp Scholarship Fund
Hilcorp recognizes that the education of our youth is one of the greatest investments we will make in our future. Today’s students will be tomorrow’s business leaders and innovators – our competitive advantage. With the rising cost of college, we recognize that it may be economically challenging for some students to receive a higher education.
To assist the children of our employees with college expenses, we developed the Hilcorp Scholarship Program. Applicants who meet the eligibility and renewal criteria, based on grade point average and proof of enrollment, are awarded $5,000 per year. Greater Houston Community Foundation administers the scholarship, and its Scholarship Advisory Committee evaluates and selects the recipients. Selection is made on an equitable and nondiscriminatory basis.
The Hilcorp Scholarship Fund was established in 2010 and has awarded a total of $480,000 to children of Hilcorp employees. Each recipient has the possibility of renewing their scholarship by meeting the renewal criteria for an additional $5,000 per year until graduation.
Although only recently established, the Hilcorp Scholarship Fund and the Hilcorp Future Leaders of America Scholarship Fund have already impacted the lives of over 100 young men and women by helping to provide educational opportunities they might not have had without the assistance.
