OESP is always eager to honor members who are propelling the industry, as well as supporting future energy professionals, who will one day become the backbone of our industry.

Focusing on the future, The Dave Nelsen Scholarship, established in 1999, has given out more than $300,000 to students interested in pursuing careers in the energy service industry.

Through our generous sponsors, OESP awards between three and six $5,000 scholarships each year. The Association seeks sponsors willing to donate $2,500 to our worthy recipients, with OESP pleased to continually provide matching funds.

To be considered, scholarship candidates are asked to write a 500-word essay, highlighting how their educational background has prepared them for career success. Applicants are also asked to share their career goals for the next 5-10 years.
