from SeIT ALL STARTS WITH AN APPLICATION
The American Association of Drilling Engineers (AADE) has a mission to “promote professionalism and respect within the drilling industry, the community, and the environment in which it co-exists.” One way that the New Orleans Chapter of AADE fulfills this mission is to offer scholarships to local university students.
Each year, the New Orleans AADE Chapter hosts several industry events to raise funds (and have a little fun!). After reviewing the net revenues and considering other industry fund commitments, the New Orleans Chapter Board Members approve a total scholarship fund available for the calendar year. This process varies from chapter to chapter.
For 2019, applications will be accepted from September 1 – October 25th and recipients are recognized at our holiday social in December.
The Scholarship Application and Its Required Attachments
The candidate must return a completed, signed AADE New Orleans Scholarship Application with an unofficial transcript. The application link is below. The application along with attachments must be submitted to the address and individual(s) listed on the New Orleans AADE Chapter application form. The application must be signed and dated by the candidate. When completing the application, consider the following:
Information used to determine award recipients
The information in the application will be used by the New Orleans AADE Steering Committee to choose the best candidates for the available funds for that year. The following items are the most important and should be addressed in the application:
The Selection and Disbursement of Funds
The applications are accepted between September 1 – October 25th. The applications are reviewed and ranked by the New Orleans AADE Steering Committee which makes recommendations to the Board for approval. The final recipient list and amounts are approved by the New Orleans AADE board.
After the approval by the New Orleans Chapter Board, the award winners are notified either by email or by phone from the information provided in the application. Those applicants who are not successful will also be notified by email or by phone. If no phone number or email accompanies the application, the AADE New Orleans Board will make every effort to contact the winners and unsuccessful applicants but the AADE New Orleans Board is not responsible if the information is incorrect or not available.
The award winners will be invited to attend the New Orleans Chapter Christmas Social. During this social, the award is given to the recipient and pictures are taken. If the award winner is unable to attend the Social, then it is up to the award winner to contact the NO AADE Board to pick up the award.
It is the responsibility of the award recipient to address any Federal or State Tax Issues related to these monies. The New Orleans Chapter of AADE is not responsible for submitting the tax paperwork for the individual if required.
