Dickinson API Memorial Scholarships

Current API members can sponsor up to two scholarships recipients, the member is required to be current on their membership dues. To qualify, students are required to be full-time. Full-time is 12 or more per semester. All entries must be returned to the Dickinson API scholarship committee by April 15th.  Transcripts are required along with the application.

Once received, the API scholarship committee will hold an interview process to select the scholarship winners. Scholarships will be announced at the May API Meeting.
Note: The field of study is not required to be in the oil & gas industry. Geographical location does not play a role in the application.


In 2021, the Dickinson API chapter was able to award $46,000 in scholarships to 46 local deserving students. The following is a list of the recipients, their sponsor, 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!
