ConocoPhillips Canada

Contributions

The three main areas ConocoPhillips Canada (CPC) supports are education, environment and safety. We also regularly fund social services, youth, health, arts, culture and civic programs. About 50 percent of our contributions go towards education.

Education

We think the best way to prepare a community for the future is to equip its youth with practical skills to help them achieve their full potential. That’s why nearly half of our annual contributions are directed toward education and youth programs.

Post-Secondary Education Initiatives

We partner with post-secondary institutions in Western Canada to provide youth with practical skills to help them achieve their full potential. In 2012 over $800,000 went to post-secondary schools where our employees live and work. Schools that were funded include University of Calgary, University of Alberta, University of Lethbridge, Mount Royal University, SAIT, NAIT and Keyano College. A couple examples include Engineering Safety and Risk Management at the University of Alberta and the Schulich School of Engineering Solar Car program at the University of Calgary. 

Centennial Scholarships

The Centennial Scholarship Program was developed to support young Canadians, with academic excellence and demonstrated leadership, in their efforts to make a difference.

The program is comprised of up to eight awards annually (four new and four renewable). These are valued at up to $10,000 each and renewable if criteria is met. Six scholarships are offered to students in Western Canada through a nomination process in the studies of petroleum, sustainable development and environment, and an open category. These scholarships are managed by the Association of Universities and Colleges. Two of the scholarships are awarded to children of ConocoPhillips employees. The process is managed by an independent consultant, and the final applicant is chosen anonymously by a CPC committee.

For more information regarding the open scholarships, go to Universities Canada.
