Global energy giant announces the first Halliburton scholars

Today (Thursday November 18), two University of Aberdeen students became the recipients of the first Halliburton UK Scholars.

At a ceremony held at King’s College, geology and petroleum geology student Jonathan Carney, and engineering student Janet Herd, were awarded scholarships in support of their studies over the next three years.

They will each receive £1000 per year, world-class mentoring and the opportunity to apply for paid summer placements with Halliburton. 

The ceremony also marked the opening of The Halliburton Room, a new 3D visualisation suite in the University’s Meston Building. 

The suite will enable budding geoscientists to use techniques pioneered by major energy companies to view seismic data gathered from the Earth’s crust, and gain a better understanding of the Earth’s evolution and the methods involved in oil and gas exploration.

Halliburton UK Vice President Simon Seaton said: “I’m delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to such bright, ambitious students.  Jonathan and Janet have excellent academic backgrounds, the right attitude and, most importantly, an overwhelming desire to succeed in the oil industry.  I am looking forward to working closely with them as they continue their university studies and begin their journey with Halliburton.

“Investment in education is critically important.  I’m proud we are able to play a part in equipping students with the skills they need to meet the future demands of the energy sector.”

These scholarships were awarded on the basis of the student’s academic record and potential, in addition to personal characteristics.  Two Halliburton Scholars were picked from 18 applicants by a committee including the Head of University’s School of Engineering, course leaders and a representative of the University’s Development Trust. 

Halliburton’s first Undergraduate Scholarship Programme was open to students commencing their third year of engineering and geology degrees.  The company has pledged £30,000 for the scheme which will run for three years.  Each year, two students will be awarded scholarships.

Professor Albert Rodger, Vice Principal and Head of the College of Physical Sciences at the University of Aberdeen said: “I’m delighted that Jonathan and Janet will have the opportunity to benefit from Halliburton’s support.  Halliburton’s contribution to scholarships, software and hardware at the University helps us to provide cutting-edge industry relevant teaching and research, which helps us to attract and retain the most talented students and academics.”
