The Halliburton Foundation recently awarded $20,500 to the Oklahoma State University Foundation in support of engineering and business education.

The Halliburton award will support three programs: Halliburton Masters scholarships, the Halliburton Leadership Challenge Program and the Halliburton Outstanding Faculty Awards for Excellence in Teaching and Research.

“It is fantastic to have an organization like Halliburton recognize the quality of programs being offered at Oklahoma State University,” said Karl Reid, dean of OSU’s College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology. “They, in turn, are directly impacting their ability to succeed in business by producing the next generation of top-quality employees.”

Oklahoma State’s partnership with Halliburton dates back to the early 1980s. Since that time, Halliburton has awarded the university more than $2 million in gifts and grants.

“By investing in our students, faculty and programs, the Halliburton Foundation is recognizing OSU strengths and signaling their commitment to the future,” said Sara Freedman, dean of the Spears School of Business.

“We take our responsibility seriously – to take that investment and prepare the next generation’s business leaders taught by some of the nations’ finest faculty members.”

Established in 1965, the Halliburton Foundation supports education at all levels by matching employee donations, supporting employee-based volunteerism and providing direct donations to U.S. based elementary and secondary schools and colleges and universities.
