Scholarship Background

Recent developments in the local energy sector have seen a widening of the gap between the needs of the sector and the limited number of qualified people to fill those roles. Based on this upsurge in opportunities it is necessary to expand the talent pool of qualified persons in the technical skills area to plug the growing gap. Over the years the BNOCL has enjoyed a symbiotic relationship with the Samuel Jackman Prescod Institute of Technology through the institute’s summer internship program and several current BNOCL employees are graduates of SJPI.

The BNOCL Scholarship program seeks to further enhance this longstanding relationship with SJPI while at the same time fulfilling its Corporate Social Responsibility of creating sustainable community-based partnerships aligned with the BNOCL brand values. Through the scholarship program BNOCL will directly impact the community by helping deserving students’ gain valuable training to increase their strength and skills and provide a sustainable pipeline for recruiting qualified, competent, future workforce.
