The Petroleum History Society, with matching grants from the Alberta
government, established a scholarship fund at the University of Calgary in 1991.
The fund currently offers one annual scholarship of $1700 to a graduate
student working in a field of study related to historical aspects of the Canadian petroleum industry.
In 2011 and 2012, the Society donated its Alberta Community Spirit Grants to this scholarship.
