2024 SPE GCS Awards and Scholarship Banquet

"America’s Role in Ensuring Energy Prosperity for the World"


Every year the Society of Petroleum Engineers Gulf Coast Section (SPE-GCS) holds a banquet to honor SPE-GCS Scholarship recipients, the Young Professionals Group, Legion of Honor, and recipients of the SPE regional and Gulf Coast Section awards.

The SPE- GCS awarded over $150,000 scholarships annually. The annual SPE-GCS Awards Banquet recognizes high school seniors, college students, Communities in Schools – Houston, and SPE  auxiliary scholarships for the 2024 academic year. This is a great opportunity to welcome outstanding students into the petroleum  industry and contribute back to members of the community. In  addition, this event also recognizes our Legion of Honor award recipients, SPE Gulf Coast Section award winners, and Gulf Coast North America Region awardees. Members of the Legion of Honor  have served SPE for fifty years and will be honored for their long-standing commitment to our professional society.

Awards Banquet honors the accomplishments of our scholarship recipients and the Legion of Honor, the award recipients and their select number of guests are invited to attend the banquet free of charge. Company table sponsorships make this banquet possible.
