Chevron seeks to promote long-term human progress through its global social investment areas of focus: economic development, education, and health

As a part of its ongoing annual scholarship program for financially disadvantaged, meritorious students Chevron Bangladesh has awarded scholarships to 849 students from 23 educational institutions.

The organization provided scholarships to students near Chevron’s Bibiyana, Jalalabad and Moulvibazar gas fields and about 64% of the scholarship recipients are female. 

Also included in the total are 66 scholarships for students who achieved excellent grades in the 2020 Secondary School Certificate (SSC) exams.

The average pass rate of Chevron’s scholarship recipients in the 2020 SSC exams was 99%, compared to the national and Sylhet division averages of 82% and 80% respectively.

Chevron Bangladesh started the scholarship program with only a small handful of educational institutions nearly two decades ago. Aside from helping students’ overall academic performance, the company’s Quality Education Support Initiative also aims to improve the learning environment of schools near its three gas fields. 

In addition to scholarships, support is provided in the form of additional teaching, computer labs, coaching support and endowment fund for selected schools, school uniforms, sports equipment, furniture, infrastructure, sanitation facilities and potable water. 

As a part of its corporate social responsibility initiatives, Chevron seeks to promote long-term human progress through its global social investment areas of focus: economic development, education, and health.

Chevron Corporation is one of the world’s leading integrated energy companies. Through its subsidiaries that conduct business worldwide, the company is involved in virtually every facet of the energy industry.
