Patson Tullow“Tullow gave me a spring board to achieve my dream and contribute towards national development in a very unique but sensitive sector. The scholarship is a ‘game-changer’ in my life.” – Patson Arinaitwe, Tullow Group scholar, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen

About the scholarships

British Council administers the scholarship programme on behalf of Tullow Group. The scholarships are for Masters-level students wishing to study in the UK.

The intention is that the scholarships will support local skills development especially, but not exclusively, for the oil and gas industries.

The scholarship currently covers Ghana, Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya, Gabon, Cote d’ Ivoire, Congo Brazzaville, Uruguay, Guyana, Mauritania, Ivory Coast, Suriname and is globally coordinated by the British Council Ghana office.

20 scholarships were awarded to Ugandans who travelled in September 2012 for their post graduate studies in England, Scotland and Ireland. The second cohort of 20 Uganda scholars is expected to join univeristy this September 2013.

The Tullow Group Scholarship Scheme aims to bring lasting benefits to the people and economies of the countries where Tullow operates. The scholarships support this agenda by helping to increase the number of people with expertise in oil and gas and other sectors.
