Lesly Mamani is a chemical engineering student from the National University of Engineering (Peru) and the first woman who has won the PERU LNG Scholarship, after passing demanding tests and interviews.
Lesly achieved her goal after applying for the second time. In 2018 she tried it but did not make it because of her lack of English proficiency. However, that was not a barrier, but a challenge that managed to overcome and today she will not only study for two semesters at the University of Oklahoma (United States), one of the most renowned universities in gas and oil, but also join the team that operates the PERU LNG natural gas liquefaction plant after completing her studies.
From 2012 to date, there have been eight winners of this annual scholarship which is increasingly gaining more interest in the community of engineering students.
The PERU LNG scholarship is an educational incentive aimed at young students studying the last semester in the following engineering branches: mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, petrochemical engineering, electrical engineering and mechatronics. Its objective is to contribute to the country’s development through professional training of students in internationally recognized academic institutions and labor experience.
