Program Overview

As part of our commitment to the local midstream and gas processing industry, the Appalachian Basin GPA Midstream Association (ABGPA Midstream) has initiated a scholarship program to support the educational endeavors of our future members and industry employees.

ABGPA Midstream promotes regional growth within our industry by awarding financial support through our scholarship program to Engineering and Technical School students interested in Midstream careers. For the 2021 academic school year, the Appalachian Basin Chapter will award scholarships up to a total of $20,000.

This year, the Appalachian Basin Chapter has partnered with:

West Virginia University ♦ Stark State College ♦ Marietta College ♦ West Virginia Northern Community College ♦ Pittsburgh Technical College ♦ Westmoreland County Community College ♦ Community College of Beaver County ♦ Slippery Rock University ♦ University of Pittsburgh ♦ Pierpont Community & Technical College / Alderson Broaddus
versity ♦ St. Francis University ♦ Fairmont State University                

This year, the scholarship program will again be open to all non-partner schools in the Appalachian region. The Scholarship Committee will determine if the student applying from a non-partner school meets the qualification requirements upon receiving the application. See below for qualification requirements.

We are now accepting applications from current members of ABGPA Midstream and their sponsored immediate family members. Members must be in good standing and a have held a membership for at least one year prior to applying.

The ABGPA Midstream Scholarship Committee is composed of a minimum of three members appointed by the Board of Directors. Applications will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee and will provide a recommendation of nominees to the Board of Directors.

The Scholarship Committee will judge applications based on merit to students who’s academic and extra-curricular activities demonstrate a desire to succeed, a commitment to making a positive contribution to others and whose application substantiates the minimum requirements.
