Williams gives Mesa State scholarships
Williams will offer a $6,000 scholarship to five Mesa State College students each year for the next five years.
Williams donated $150,000 to the college Tuesday. Students with at least a 3.0 grade-point average can submit essays on how energy affects their lives as they apply for the scholarships. Prospective scholarship recipients will be interviewed by a scholarship committee.
The scholarship is for students in the landman/energy-management program at the college. Students who graduate from this program may become Williams employees, which is one reason to support the program with scholarship dollars, said Alan Harrison, vice president of Williams in the Denver Region, during a news conference Tuesday at the college.
