The Permian Basin GPA has awarded scholarships to deserving college students for many years. We have worked closely with the engineering departments of Texas Tech University, New Mexico State University, New Mexico Tech University, and University of Texas Permian Basin, to seek out Permian Basin juniors and seniors that express a possible interest in a career in the gas processing industry after college graduation. The funds for these scholarships come from chapter fund raising activities, primarily our Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament, Event Raffles and our Annual Shrimp Boil held in conjunction with the PBGPA Annual Meeting. Please visit our Sponsor page to learn a little more about this year’s Sponsors and find out how your company can participate as a Sponsor or Co-Sponsor of this invaluable program.
Currently, Gas Processors Suppliers Association matches up to $5,000 of the PBGPA’s contribution which allows us to give out between $15,000 and $25,000 to future gas processing professionals each year. Our goal is to continue to give more. To accomplish that goal we need your help. Every event that we hold will be aimed at bringing in money to give back to our scholarship fund, so your participation in the local PBGPA Events and/or Sponsorships/Donations are essential to our success!
Attracting and supporting the next generation of engineering talent is a vital part of PBGPA Midstream’s mission.

Each fundraising event we plan and hold is aimed at collecting funds to give back to our scholarship program. Therefore your participation in our local PBGPA Midstream events, along with directed corporate sponsorships/donations are essential to our program’s success!
