Chevron strives to improve the quality of and access to education for students in the areas where we operate. In 2001, we launched our scholarship drive for high-achieving underprivileged students. In 2016, more than 1,500 scholarships were awarded to students from 40 schools. The scholarship program also includes a teacher-training component. In addition, we support programs to improve children’s learning experiences in school.

In partnership with Save the Children, Chevron is improving access to quality education in rural communities near our operations, covering 1,800 out-of-school children in 60 one-room schools. Also, approximately 1,200 students have benefited from after-school activities and remedial education.

Creating Educational Opportunities

One of the most endurable gifts of humankind is education. And Chevron makes a point of investing in education to make it accessible to those who deserve it the most. By supporting faculty recruitment and extending annual scholarships to more than 1,600 underprivileged children, it makes sure the future is secure for the children living near all three of its gas field locations. Nantu, Tuha and Zia narrate how Chevron has turned their lives around.
