Dickinson API Memorial Scholarships

Our Dickinson API Memorial Scholarship is now open. Please read all requirements for the scholarship as they have changed. If a sponsor or student doesn’t fulfill all requirements, the scholarship will not be accepted.

API Sponsor requirements:

  1. Must be a current Dickinson API member. Dues are required to be paid by January 1st of the current year of scholarships.
  2. Must attend a minimum of three meetings.
  3. Sponsors are only allowed to sponsor two applicants.

Student requirements:

  • To qualify, students are required to be full-time. Full-time is 12 or more per semester.
  • Transcripts are required along with the application.
  • The field of study is not required to be in the oil & gas industry. Geographical location does not play a role in the application.
  • All entries must be returned to the Dickinson API scholarship committee by April 15, 2023.

Once scholarships are received, the API scholarship committee will hold an interview process to select the scholarship winners. Scholarships will be announced at the May API Meeting.


In 2022, the Dickinson API chapter was able to award $60,000 in scholarships to 60 local deserving students. The following is a list of the recipients, the sponsor, and the school they are attending, degree pursuing, and the amount awarded to each.

Thank you to our API scholarship committee members for their time and dedication they put forth.

Let’s continue to work hard to raise funds to give back to our community and youth! Good work team!
