The scholarship, known as “The Hess Corporation Scholarship,” will be awarded to

$3,000 each, will be awarded students.
“Hess Corporation is committed to making a long-term positive impact on the communities
in which we do business,” said Joaquin Martinez, Hess Operations Manager. “That
is why we are proud to partner with Belmont College to offer the Hess Corporation
Scholarship and aid in the education of future leaders.”
The recipient(s) will be selected by the Belmont College Scholarship Committee,

will be made to non-traditional students who are displaced workers returning to
college in order to further their education and regain employment.
Martinez went on to say, “This scholarship will open up opportunities for students
not only in the energy industry, but in other growing sectors in the economy that
the energy industry impacts such as business, healthcare, public safety, and information
According to R.J. Konkoleski, Director of Development and External Affairs at Belmont
College, “The Hess Corporation Scholarship at Belmont College is a model partnership
in which the private sector provides funding to help educate men and women gain
the highly technical skills necessary to do well in the emerging local economy.
This creates a positive, upward cycle in which businesses like Hess benefit and
members of the local workforce benefit simultaneously.”
