I have a scholarship with Saudi Aramco

Petroleum Engineer Sholarship (Current Employee) Baton Rouge, LA

ProsI reached to them after high school. They have a restricted program for scholarship mostly for Saudi Students. Now I study Petroleum Engineering at LSU (Louisiana State University). The program is excellent, they provide every thing from monthly salary ( more than $2000) which increase by 15% when you finish half your major. They also take care of the tuition and they provide book allowance each semester that is $ 1000. The pay a close attention to their student with a visit each semester and a private meeting with each student to check up on them. They give also rewards each semester for those who perform well that ranges from ( 500$ to 1000$) depending on their GPA. At the last summer of your study, they refer their student to some of the large companies in U.S to do an internship. For me I have been offered Baker Hughes,Schlumberger and Exxon and I did an interview with BH and got accepted last week

ConsSome times it is not easy to get a response from your supervisor. They give me a hard time when i try to ask for some information or permission to drop or add other courses. Also, it is true they provide an insurance but it lacks dental coverage.
