The Houston Gas Processors Association has awarded three students from the College of Engineering the Houston GPA scholarship.

The LU recipients, mechanical engineering majors, Britney Sumayah and Christian Chavez ’21 and electrical engineering major, Eduardo Reyes, were all awarded $4,000 each. 

In 2002, the Houston GPA established $25,000 endowed scholarships at six Texas universities, including Lamar University. Dr. Brian Craig, dean of the College of Engineering at LU, says it’s an opportunity that sets LU engineering students up for success. 

"We are so grateful to the Houston Gas Processors Association for designating Lamar University as one of the six universities to receive ongoing scholarship endowments," Craig said. “LU engineers have always been well-placed to enter the oil and gas industry thanks to our proximity to one of the most economically important regions in the world, and this scholarship recognizes outstanding students who have an interest in continuing in that tradition."

The non-profit organization provides the endowed and annually funded scholarship to students who are pursuing an education program or career in the Midstream Industry.
