The Association of International Petroleum Negotiators (AIPN) has announced two important scholarship programs that are open to University of Denver Sturm College of Law full-time students.
The AIPN was founded in 1981 to enhance the professionalism of cross-border energy negotiators throughout the world. It is now composed of more than 2,900 members in more than 80 countries, representing numerous international oil and gas companies, host governments, law firms and academic institutions.
The winner of the first program, the Student Outreach Program, will receive a fully paid trip and registration to the AIPN Spring Conference April 13-15, 2011, in San Antonio, Texas.
