OESP’s Dave Nelsen Scholarship Program was established in 1999 to provide scholarships to students interested in pursuing their careers in the energy service industry.
Since 1999, more than $300,000 in awards have been presented. To be considered a candidate, applicants are required to write a 500-word essay telling the committee about themselves, including how their background has prepared them for success in their chosen field of study. Each year hundreds of applications are reviewed by the scholarship committee.
Corporate sponsors are needed to help continue this scholarship program. OESP awards $5,000 per qualifying student per year. The association contributes $2,500 of that amount. It is seeking sponsors to match that sum. Corporate sponsors receive:
