Isenberg Education Fund Scholarship

Eugene-Isenberg

The Isenberg Education Fund Scholarship Program’s goal is to help provide Nabors employees and their family members with an opportunity to learn, grow and become professionals in their chosen careers. Eugene M. Isenberg, former Chairman & CEO of Nabors, established the Isenberg Education Fund Scholarship Program in 2009 when he began donating all the proceeds of his salary to benefit the educational pursuits of Nabors’ employees and their immediate family members. The Isenberg Education Fund Scholarship Program provides financial assistance for students pursuing post-secondary and graduate degrees. The Isenberg Education Fund Scholarship Program seeks to provide this assistance to talented, high-achieving individuals who demonstrate strong academic performance, dedicated community service, and need financial aid.
