Chevron Expands Leadership Academy into Multidisciplinary Program

Chevron recently expanded its support of the Chevron Leadership Academy to create a university wide program that promotes the ideals of leadership. The new initiative came with a generous $150,000 donation to support student scholarships and programmatic activities, with a commitment to continue annual funding of the program for the next three years.

The Chevron Energy Leaders Scholarship Program is a collaborative effort which will provide scholarship support to 30 high-achieving, freshman student leaders committed to careers in the energy industry. This program will be offered to 24 undergraduate students in the College of Engineering, four undergraduate students in the College of Business as well as two graduate students in the College of Science. 

Students enrolled in the program have obligatory commitments which will refine their skills in areas of leadership, interviewing and networking. The program will offer an employee mentor, leadership seminars, a scholarship banquet and inclusion of the Chevron Leadership Academy.

“It’s value-added opportunities, like the Chevron Leadership Academy, that allow students to differentiate themselves in the marketplace. The value-added experiences allow them to broaden their horizons and become better-rounded individuals who will be successful in any environment in which they want to compete,” said Craig Harvey, associate dean for academic affairs and professor of industrial engineering.
