OESP Seeks Scholars

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, executive director, OESP. “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 has been presented to students interested in pursuing energy-service industry careers. This marks the scholarship’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? The deadline for receipt of the application and essay is March 1, 2013.

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