Student Scholarships

The Houston Association of Professional Landmen Student Scholarship Fund is organized to recognize personal accomplishments, recognize academic achievement, and to aid the children of HAPL members in pursuing higher education through monetary contributions to first semester tuition.

High School Student Applicants

Applicant must be a graduating senior with a parent who has been an Active, Life, or Honorary Life member of the HAPL eligible to vote for the last three consecutive years (dues current). Note: If the parent has been transferred to Houston within the last three years, said parent should be a member of the HAPL for a minimum of six months and provide proof of membership of the local organization from which they were transferred.

Students may only apply if they do not anticipate a full scholarship from a college or university or a full grant from other sources.

Only one scholarship will be awarded per student. 

Any member of the Houston Association of Professional Landmen, who is the parent of a prospective applicant, may not participate on the Scholarship Committee. The amount of each scholarship will be $1,000.00.

College Student Applicants

You must be currently enrolled in an AAPL approved Petroleum Land Management or Energy Management Program.   Applicants must provide a current copy of their college transcript with the application and the two letters of recommendation.

Students attending college under a full Scholarship from a college or university or a full grant from other sources will not be eligible for this scholarship program.

Scholarship amount will be no less than $1,000.00.

Each year at the Tribute to Education and Scholarship Luncheon, HAPL awards scholarships to high school seniors of HAPL members and college students enrolled in an AAPL accredited energy management program. This luncheon will be held at the Petroleum Club located at 1201 Louisiana (top floor).
