KMG International Scholarships Program 2019


100 scholarships were granted in 2018 within the KMG International Scholarships program to the most noteworthy students, as part of our tradition to support education and foster the ambitions of the future generations of specialists in Oil & Gas.

From hundreds of applications, our jury selected the most deserving and highly-motivated high school and university students from Constanta, Prahova and Bucharest, who are striving to develop a career in the Oil & Gas industry. Each of them received a scholarship amounting to USD 1,000, granted for the entire academic year.

This year, we continue our scholarships program, driven by our desire to support students who are passionate about the energy sector. The winners will be selected through a rigorous process: 50 of the scholarships will be awarded to students from the company’s apprenticeship program, based on their performance, while the remaining 50 will be awarded through the grant call.

October 21 – October 30: Jury analysis
