Program Summary

The sponsor will rank the potential impact to Halliburton of each proposal received based upon how it aligns with one or more of these specific objectives:

  • Supports Halliburton’s ‘Sustainable Technology’ strategy to promote a reduced environmental footprint during the oil and gas field drilling and production lifecycle.
  • Promotes opportunity for ethnicity and gender diversity within the math, sciences and/or engineering discipline.
  • Business school curriculums that emphasize leadership, a global perspective, and technical competencies in creative and innovative ways to highlight opportunities in oil and gas services.
  • Promotes the use of Halliburton technologies and business practices as components of the curriculum.

Programs such as student competitions that encourage youth to pursue STEM studies, bridge programs that boost retention in technical disciplines, initiatives that develop technical, business or leadership skills or promote interest in the Oil & Gas industry are prime examples of how Halliburton can best leverage the Halliburton Foundation grant awards for the purpose of long term positive branding jointly with students and faculty.
