Coastal Bend College to Offer Oil & Gas Scholarships to Veterans

Coastal Bend College received some money on Tuesday to help veterans interested in pursuing a career in the oil and gas industry.

The $50,000 donation came from DCP Midstream, a producer of natural gas liquids. The initiative, called Operation Next, is designed to help provide support for veterans in the form of scholarships.

"As long as the person is a veteran and they're entering any field related to oil and gas and petroleum, they qualify for the scholarship money," CBC Executive Director Christy Lansford said. "And they can be a veteran of any of the eras, any of the wars. They just have to be a veteran, so that's the qualification for it."

The CBC said you can begin applying now for the scholarship money.
