The Pipe Liners Club of Tulsa Awards over $200,000 in Scholarships

The Pipe Liners Club of Tulsa recently held their annual scholarship distribution meeting at the Tulsa Country Club.

Founded in 1947 to educate best practices for pipeline installation and maintenance, all proceeds of numerous annual club events such as monthly meetings, golf tournaments, sporting clay tournaments, fishing tournaments, young professional events, and pipeline college classes are pooled for distribution of scholarship awards.

The scholarship piece was created in 1955, and the first scholarship was granted for the 1956-1957 school year to the University of Tulsa College of Petroleum Sciences and Engineering in the amount of $350.00. Fast forward decades to 2019; the Club awarded a record $206,500.00 to 88 qualified applicants.

Applying students must be sponsored by a club member and each application is reviewed by the Scholarship Committee for qualification. Awards are based on merit and the student's finances. The Club’s primary focus is on students whose academic and extra-curricular activities show promise, a desire to succeed, a commitment to make a positive contribution to others, and whose application substantiates minimum requirements.

2018-2020 Club Treasurer Terry Flynn states “We are honored to grant these awards to a great group of students annually. Although qualifying criteria does not require the student to be pursuing petroleum industry studies, we have found that many applicants are already on pipeline industry career paths or have shifted their focus to our industry after seeing the viable career path the pipeline industry can offer.”
