Grover endows engineering fellowship at Texas A&M

Dr. Tarun Grover has endowed an engineering fellowship for petroleum engineering graduate students in the Dwight Look College of Engineering at Texas A&M University.

Grover earned his Ph.D. in petroleum engineering from Texas A&M in 2008 and citing the impact obtaining his degree from Texas A&M had on his career, he said he thought it necessary to show his support to the college and university by establishing a fellowship for graduate students desiring to further their educational careers.

“My graduate studies at Texas A&M have been instrumental in preparing me to take on the technical challenges in the oil and gas industry,” Grover said. “The least I can do is to help fellow Aggies to pursue their research and ambitions.”

The recipient of this fellowship will be a full-time graduate student pursuing a graduate degree in petroleum engineering. Selection of the recipients will be performed by the faculty and appointed by the head of the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering.
