Khan wins scholarship to attend Oil & Money Conference  

 Abdul Saboor Khan, who received his undergraduate degree in Petroleum Engineering this past May, has been awarded the “Leaders for Tomorrow” Scholarship for 2016 to attend the Oil & Money Conference, which is taking place 18-19 Oct. in the UK. The scholarship will cover all major expenses of the trip, including travel, meals and hotel accommodation. Khan will not just attend the conference; he will also get the chance to pose questions throughout the conference, attend private meetings with top speakers and executives, and network with delegates during lunch hours. He will also be put in touch with other “Leaders for Tomorrow” through a private LinkedIn page so that he can continue to network with them after the conference. Khan will bring awareness to the conference by tweeting about events while he is there, as well as by using the interactive Oil & Money website to contribute to the discussions occurring throughout the conference.

The Oil & Money Conference has been an annual event in the UK since its inauguration in 1980. The purpose of the event is to bring in senior executives in the petroleum and gas industries from around the world in order to create a space for high-level discussions about the most pressing oil-related issues of today.

Khan said he is grateful and excited for having been given this amazing opportunity. “I am extremely humbled and excited to be selected for the scholarship and am determined to represent my institution and the department in a positive way. I would extend my special thanks to Dr. Bowman who informed me about the opportunity and encouraged me to apply for it.”
