Guidelines & Application Process

In 2017, Cameron LNG will continue its support of higher education by offering a scholarship program to students who are high school/secondary school seniors. The Cameron LNG Scholarship is a competitive program offered to students in Cameron Parish schools. Scholarships are offered for students that will continue their education at a trade, technical or community college or four-year college or university.

Cameron LNG will award scholarships to selected recipients planning to pursue both 2 and 4-year educational programs.

Student Eligibility:
  1. Must be graduating from high school/secondary school (must be in their final year of high school/secondary school at time of application).
  2. Must demonstrate potential for college-level coursework as applicable.
  3. Must be planning to enter an accredited post-secondary education program, part- or full-time, for the entire academic year immediately following graduation.
Awards and Selection Process

How are winners selected?

A selection committee comprised of Cameron LNG’s employees & Community Advisory Committee members will evaluate the applications and select the finalists. All finalists will be required to interview in person. Scheduling options will be provided to the finalists in early April.

How can the award be used?

The scholarship funds may be used for undergraduate-level education expenses, including tuition and fees, room and board, books and required equipment. Awards may be given to students planning to pursue a trade such as computer programming, auto mechanics, welding, pipe-fitting or any other profession, at an accredited vocation/technical school.

When will awards be paid?

Upon receipt of a copy of the recipient’s fall class schedule and fee receipt, the award will be mailed to the student’s permanent home address by September 1st.
