The Petroleum History Society, with matching grants from the Alberta government, established a scholarship fund at the University of Calgary in 1991. The fund offers one annual scholarship of approximately $2400 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.
