THE TONY NOON MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
Applications for the 2013-14 Tony Noon Scholarship will be called in July 2013.
This scholarship is for students enrolled for honours, Masters or PhD degrees at an Australian university. It provides a one-off grant to a maximum value of $3000.
The 2012 Tony Noon Scholarship was awarded to University of Adelaide petroleum engineering Masters student Nicole Ditty.
The Tony Noon fund is aimed at helping students who are aspiring to, or considering, a career in upstream petroleum in any discipline directly related to the industry. This could include, but is not restricted to, exploration, safety, engineering, environmental management, economic or legal areas.
Tony Noon worked at APPEA from 1994-1998. His principal responsibilities were to the Health Safety & Production and Exploration Committees. His work on these Committees was outstanding and his contribution to APPEA and the industry during his time at the Canberra office was exceptional. Sadly, he passed away in September 1998 following a long battle with leukaemia.
Subsequently, the APPEA Board approved the establishment of the Tony Noon Memorial Fund in memory of Tony Noon and his outstanding contribution to the petroleum industry through his work with the Queensland Department of Mines and Energy and later as a member of the APPEA staff.
Funds cannot be used for any purpose other than as set out in the successful application. APPEA reserves the right not to award the funds if it deems the applicants are not of a suitable calibre.
