Tullow is investing in secondary, vocational and tertiary education in other projects it is undertaking. This scholarship scheme is targeted at post-graduate education because of the identified priority gaps and the specialized nature of the skills required for each participating countries’ fast developing oil and gas industry and other sectors so as not to lead to overdependence on the Oil and Gas industry.
Tullow has supported projects that promote science in secondary schools through the rehabilitation of science blocks and provision of laboratory equipment. Our commitment to education does not start at secondary and tertiary level as we recognise the need to support basic/primary school initiatives in more remote areas. We have supported numerous local primary schools by upgrading their infrastructure, providing school materials and equipment, and programmes to improve the quality of teaching.
