John S. Belgrave Memorial Award

The John S. Belgrave Memorial Award is awarded by CAPPA to SAIT students who are enrolled in the fulltime practicum program. This award honours John S. Belgrave — a leader and an innovator in the production accounting field. John was a great friend of CAPPA and — along with CAPPA and their many volunteers  — helped improved education for production accountants before he passed away in 2001.

To encourage those students in the Oil and Gas Production Accounting program at SAIT, CAPPA offers a $1,000 award to that one full-time student in the practicum program who, in addition to academic achievement, demonstrates such attributes as leadership, resourcefulness and helpfulness. The recipient will be nominated by his or her fellow classmates and approved by the program coordinator at SAIT.  The deadline is June 30 each year.
