About the Program

Waha Oil Company launched a renewed partnership with IIE to create a scholarship program for Libyan petroleum professionals in 2007. The program aims to strengthen Libyan human capital and lays the foundation for future international cooperation with the country while U.S. students gain firsthand knowledge of the petroleum industry from their Libyan classmates. Waha employees are coming to the U.S. for intensive English instruction and specialized training in oil industry-specific fields of study.
