Montana Tech Student Named SPE Star Scholar
Every year, the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) awards Star scholarships and fellowships representing a $1 million commitment to education. Scholarships are available in all 15 SPE regions to students entering or currently enrolled in universities and pursuing an undergraduate degree related to the oil and gas industry. The fellowships are also available in every region to graduate students pursuing a degree related to the oil and gas industry. Montana Tech Petroleum Engineering graduate student Scyller Borglum received a 2011 SPE Star Fellowship, announced at the SPE Annual Technical Conference & Exhibit in Denver this fall. Scyller, originally from Great Falls, MT, is the first Montana Tech graduate student to receive this fellowship, $10,000 a year, every year until she graduates. There were two fellowships given out for the Rocky Mountain Region and approximately two given out in every other region globally. The other fellowship and only scholarship for the Rocky Mountain Region went to a student from the Colorado School of Mines.
