Each year, the NHAPL Board of Directors votes to give multiple scholarships to student applicants for the upcoming school year. The applicants are thoroughly reviewed in a process beginning in March, led by the Philanthropic Chair, Sam Kneisley (Sabine O&G) and then announced at the May Luncheon.

This year, in 2018, we'll be awarding three (3) scholarships of $1,000 to deserving individuals. If you know a student who is pursuing a career in the Land industry, please contact Sam Kneisley at

Our 2017-2018 recipients of scholarships are:
