In 1997, GO-WV established its Scholarship Program in an effort to become more involved in higher education in West Virginia.
The Scholarship Program was specifically created to reward the outstanding scholastic achievements of high school seniors whose parents work in the oil and natural gas industry for GO-WV members companies. The Association now includes deserving high school “student employees” who have completed a required number of working hours at a GO-WV member company. Since the Scholarship Program’s inception, a total of $180,500 in scholarships has been awarded to these very deserving students.
Beginning in 2020, we began offering two scholarships to students attending vocational and/or technical schools.
