The average attendance is 1300 students for the two and a half day school. The 2011 School is the 86th. The school is held with the cooperation and support of the University of Oklahoma, associations, manufacturing firms and industry companies.

The International School of Hydrocarbon Measurement Scholarship Fund was established to provide financial support to University of Oklahoma students pursuing and undergraduate/graduate degree associated with the science of financial support to other universities and technical schools that offer degrees associated with hydrocarbon management.

Funding is achieved through individual, group, or corporate donations or through special activities organized by the ISHM Committee.
