The Tri-State Desk and Derrick Club is pleased to offer a one-year, up to $3,000 scholarship opportunity to applicants planning to attend a trade or technical school in 2020. There are no age restrictions, as along as the applicant has a high school diploma or GED.

Qualified applicants must be a U.S. citizen, pursuing a career in the natural gas and oil industry, and reside in Indiana, Illinois or Kentucky or a student attending or planning to attend an accredited Indiana, Illinois or Kentucky technical or trade school.
