Nov. 15, 2012: OESP Accepting Applications for Dave Nelsen Scholarship Program

EAST PETERSBURG, Pa. — The National Association of Oil & Energy Service Professionals (OESP) is accepting applications for the Dave Nelsen Scholarship Program. “The oil and energy industry is continually looking for qualified technicians to work in our industry,” said Judy Garber, OESP executive director. “OESP’s mission is education and we’re taking the lead by supporting our future technicians through annual scholarships.”

The Dave Nelsen Scholarship fund was established in 1999. Since then, over $191,000 in awards have been presented to students interested in pursuing careers in the energy-service industry. This marks the scholarship program’s 14th year and OESP, along with industry partners, plans to award a minimum of four $5,000 awards. The scholarship is funded by an annual golf tournament held during OESP’s Annual Convention.

Each scholarship applicant is required to write a 500-word essay answering the following questions: “What are your goals in the oil-and-energy service field, and what appeals to you about the oil-and-energy industry?” Applicants must also complete a form that may assist them in the writing of their essay. The deadline for receipt of the application and essay is Friday, March 1, 2013.

OESP’s panel of judges will review the submitted applications. Winners will be notified and invited to attend the awards banquet, held on Tuesday evening during OESP’s 60th Annual Convention & Trade Show, scheduled for May 19-23, 2013 at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in Hershey, Pa.
