Phillips 66 and Texas Tech University recognized the first class of Phillips 66 SHIELD Scholars at a dinner on April 30 at The Texas Tech Club. This year’s recipients included a dozen students representing the Edward E. Whitacre Jr. College of Engineering and the Rawls College of Business who have a strong interest in pursuing a career in the energy industry.
SHIELD (Students Heightening Involvement in Education, Learning and Development) reflects the integrated energy manufacturing and logistics company’s values of community involvement; education; service learning and leadership; and personal and professional development. Students accepted into the program receive a $3,500 annual scholarship and are paired with a Phillips 66 mentor who can help advise a student on making the transition from classroom to career.
Scholarship recipients must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.25 and be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student majoring in business, chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering or materials engineering.
