EQT Foundation Creates the EQT Scholarship Program

Partnering with local community foundations in 2019, the EQT Foundation created the EQT Scholarship Program, which awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors looking to pursue careers in the oil and gas industry. The program consists of five $1,000, one-time awards, as well as one full scholarship, for up to $18,000 per year, renewable for four years. Each awardee must be looking to study a field related to the oil and gas industry at either a four-year or trade school. In its inaugural year, the program supported students in Greene and Washington Counties in Pennsylvania, as well as Belmont County, Ohio. In 2020, the program expanded to Doddridge, Marion, Tyler and Wetzel Counties in West Virginia, increasing the total scholarship commitment for this program to $539,000.
