What they say about PETROFUND?

Exploration Geophysics opened my eyes to endless applications of geophysics throughout a whole range of disciplines. This would not have been possible without the financial support of Petrofund for both my B.Sc. (honours) Geophysics (Wits University) and M.Sc. (Exploration Geophysics) at University of Leeds. It is one of the best well managed scholarship in the country.




What feels like the end is the beginning of the professional journey.






The PETROFUND scholarship gave me a chance to broaden my horizons and gain new skills set that open up options in my career.






I was part of a team that explores one of the most fascinating places on earth, where i have seen the world class geology in reality, all thanks to Petrofund.






My sincere gratitude goes to PETROFUND, who gave me the opportunity to study petroleum geoscience at the very heart of the European oil and gas industry in Aberdeen. They played a pivotal role in putting me on my path of being at the forefront of oil and gas exploration in Namibia.





I am a PetroFund baby. Petrofund sponsored my studies from undergraduate level at UNAM, until my postgraduate studies when I graduated with a masters in Petroleum Geosciences at the Royal Holloway University of London in the UK. PetroFund gave me the opportunity to receive the best education which helped me excel in my career as a geoscientist as well as my personal development. Thank you Petrofund for your continued support.




Petrofund has carried me through my Journey from UNAM to UCT and finally Salford, Manchester. I am grateful and proud to be associated with their brand, excellent customer care and commitment to funding the needy.





Petrofund has played an incredible role in my life for sponsoring my Honors and Masters degrees, I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for Petrofund, I will forever be grateful.






I am deeply honoured to have been awarded the PETROFUND scholarship which did not only enable me to obtain a well-recognised degree, but also one that enables me to advance my career

Petroleum Training and Education Fund (PETROFUND) was formed in 1993 in order to offer training in fields of science and information technology through scholarships and support education institution building.
