Oil Spill Technology Scholarship

Brian Reith, Kenai Peninsula College
Contract Term: 01/01/08-12/31/08
Award: $25,000

Scope of Work:

This scholarship was created to promote the improvement of oil spill technology and equipment by providing a scholarship of up to $4,000 per semester for up to three semesters to a full-time KPC student in the Process Technology or Industrial Process Instrumentation programs. The scholarship student is required to participate in a paid ($13,000) technical internship, typically during the summer between their freshman and sophomore years. Internship details will be determined between the student, KPC, and the Oil Spill Recovery Institute. The internship will be coordinated through the Prince William Sound Science Center and will focus on the development or improvement of oil spill response technology currently in use in Alaska. Obtaining a 24-hour Hazwopper certificate is a prerequisite for the internship. Following their internship, the student will make a presentation of his/her work to the Oil Spill Recovery Institute Board, which meets twice per year in Alaska.
