Talisman extends its scholarship scheme

Talisman extends its scholarship scheme
NORTH Sea operator Talisman Energy (UK) last night announced plans to increase its investment in a scholarship to more than £1million.

NORTH Sea operator Talisman Energy (UK) last night announced plans to increase its investment in a scholarship to more than £1million.

At the Talisman Scholarship 2011 Awards dinner in Aberdeen, the firm said it was raising the figure by £300,000, helping to extend a programme at Aberdeen University over another six years. Talisman first launched its scholarship programme in 2006, with an investment of £800,000 supporting students at Aberdeen and Robert Gordon universities. It has helped more than 100 students since then.

News of the extra cash emerged as 13 new scholars received awards at the ceremony at Aberdeen Art Gallery.

Geoff Holmes, Canada-based Talisman’s UK senior vice president, said: “I am delighted we have agreed an extension of the programme at the University of Aberdeen.

“The work the university has done to expand teaching and learning in key skills for the oil and gas industry is worthy of praise and of the support we are announcing as we welcome the next intake of Talisman scholars. To those who have followed Talisman’s lead in ensuring we have a conveyor belt of highly skilled, well-motivated young people who share our belief that the North Sea has a long and prosperous future, I say thank you. To those who are watching from the sidelines, my message is simple: invest in the future, because people are the most important asset our industry has.”

Aberdeen University principal Ian Diamond said: “This is a wonderful example of how we are working with and for industry to attract and develop the talented students who will become the industry’s leaders for the future.”
