The Corpus Christi of the American Petroleum Institute strives to give back to the community through the financial support of potential and current university students via annual, renewable undergraduate academic scholarships. Each year, thanks to the hard work and dedication of its members and generous industry donations, the Corpus Christi API is able to offer a select number of scholarships to students in undergraduate degree programs. The application is open to all potential and current undergraduate students planning to or currently attending an accredited post-secondary institution. Membership and participation in our local API chapter is strongly encouraged, but not required for receipt of a scholarship.
