ConocoPhillips Scholarship Program

History

Phillips Petroleum Company and Boys & Girls Clubs of America joined together in 1989 to launch a partnership intended to identify, mentor and support disadvantaged youth with tutoring, help in developing good study habits, counseling and mentoring. The Phillips 66er's Scholarship program has not only had an enormous impact on the young adults excelling in school who are interested in pursuing higher education, but thousands of other children in local clubs. This program has provided assistance to the members of local clubs by providing tutoring, educational enhancement activities, mentoring and one-on-one counseling, college preparation skills and many other aspects that provide the children with the opportunity to grow and achieve academic excellence. Four year college scholarships are available to eligible Boys & Girls Clubs members. ln 2002, Conoco, lnc. and Phillips Petroleum Company merged. Thus, in 2003 the scholariship was renamed the ConocoPhillips, Scholarship Program.
