ExxonMobil has announced a grant of more than US$ 100 000 in support of the American Indian College Fund. The donation extends ExxonMobil’s partnership with the Fund dating back to 1988 and will provide scholarships, sponsorship and administrative support to the organisation.
Tribal College Scholarship Program
Part of the grant will be used to continue the ExxonMobil Foundation Tribal College Scholarship Program, which offers funds for Native American students studying science, technology, engineering and math a tribal colleges. Another portion is provided through the ExxonMobil Educational Matching Gift Program, one of the most generous of its kind in the US. Through this program, ExxonMobil matches 3:1 the contributions of company employees, retirees, surviving spouses and directors.
Richard B. Williams, American Indian College Fund president and CEO, said, ‘we thank ExxonMobil Corporation for its steadfast support of the American Indian College Fund and the amazing students we serve. This generous contribution is a tribute to the company’s outstanding commitment to philanthropic organisations that encourage undeserved students to pursue technology related careers.’
For 20 years, ExxonMobil Tribal College Scholarship Program has provided financial assistance to American Indian students pursuing advanced degrees. Since 2003, ExxonMobil has assisted almost 250 American Indian students from more than 45 tribes in reaching their higher education goals.
