Read all instructions carefully before completing the application

Step One: Learn requirements for submitting an application

Before you begin this application, you must contact the Waha Oil Company Scholarship and Training Program Office to learn about eligibility requirements and deadline dates.

Step Two: Record user ID and password in a safe place

When you enter the application you will need to create an account. Your email address is your user ID. When you create an account for this on-line application, you must identify a password. Keep this information in a safe place. You can log in and out of the application as frequently as you like; however, you must have your user ID and password. While you cannot change your User ID, if necessary, you can change your password by clicking on “Update My Account” at the top of the Home page of this application.

Step Three: Select the program to which you are applying and the academic level

After you create an account, you will be able to log into the application. The first time you enter the application, you will go to a Preliminary Question page. On this page it is important that you answer the following two questions correctly:

  1. For which program you are applying: WAHA Oil Scholarship
  2. For which academic level: Short-Term Study

Step Four: Complete the short-term application

Do not complete the graduate application. Complete the short-term study application. You do not need to complete this application at one sitting. You can re-enter at anytime and edit your application either by going through this site or you can access the application directly at IIE's application portal. But remember that once you submit your application, you can NO longer make changes to it.

All forms in this application are to be completed in English. Items must be answered completely and carefully.

Some helpful "tips":

  • Avoid using all capital letters when answering items, e.g., name, address, etc. It is better to use upper and lower case, e.g. Ron Smith.
  • You can copy and paste information into all text boxes.
  • In the text boxes, you must limit your responses to the space provided. Information that exceeds the space provided will not display or print. If what you have typed or copied exceeds the size of the box, you must edit it.
  • You can review each page of the application in its PDF format by clicking on the Preview button on the upper right-hand corner. Be sure to review so that you can make sure all of your text is viewable.
  • Closing out of the PDF view will bring you back to your application.
  • On page 3, you can post a professional resume or curriculum vitae.
  • Some questions are "required." In other words, you will not be able to complete and submit your application until all required items are completed. When you click on the Application Inspector button on the Home page, your application will be checked for completeness. You will be prompted to enter any missing information on required questions.

Often specific instructions for completing a question or item are provided in the application itself. Please read all instructions carefully. In addition, please review the following important information.
