Charles D. Kemp Scholarships

Each year, the non-profit PEI Foundation awards the Charles D. Kemp Scholarships to deserving dependents of PEI member company employees. The program is administered by the Board of Governors of the PEI Foundation and a Scholarship Selection Committee.

Scholarship recipients are selected based on academic achievement, leadership, character, need and the applicant’s intent to contribute  to the future of the petroleum and energy handling equipment industry. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, gender, disability, or national origin.

The scholarship awards are $1,000 each. The PEI Foundation Board of Governors and the Scholarship Selection Committee will determine the number of scholarships to be awarded in any given year.


To be eligible, an applicant must be a dependent of a full-time employee of a member company in PEI’s manufacturer, distributor, service and construction, or affiliate divisions. Applicants must also plan to enroll as an entering full-time freshman for the 2020-2021 academic year at an accredited four-year college or university.
