RUSTON, La., (KNOE 8 News) - ExxonMobil Corporation has awarded Louisiana Tech University and its College of Engineering and Science $23,000 in academic grants as part of their nationwide Departmental Grants Program.

Louisiana Tech's civil engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering programs will each benefit from the funding provided by ExxonMobil.  This year, ExxonMobil has awarded $2 million in academic grants to 83 colleges and universities.  During the last ten years, ExxonMobil has provided more than $20 million dollars to higher education institutions.

Dr. Stan A. Napper, dean of the College of Engineering and Science at Louisiana Tech, says these funds are vitally important.

"The grants allow the departments to allocate money for various educational purposes including scholarships, field trips, visiting speakers, equipment purchases and student and faculty travel," said Napper.
