SPE Canada


Some Canadian professionals have been contacted by a group claiming to represent SPE as part of an “environmental survey.” SPE has not authorized this survey and is not involved with these calls or this survey.

Trevor Forward, SPE Star Scholarship Winner 

Trevor ForwardTrevor Forward of Conception Bay South, Newfoundland Labrador is one of this year's recipients of the SPE Star Scholarship. Trevor is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering at Memorial University of Newfoundland where he hopes to graduate in 2017. He is an active and adventurous individual who is always open to opportunities to lead, innovate and problem solve. He enjoys exploring and traveling, frequently finding the time to get away for fishing, and hunting.

Trevor spent time in British Columbia focusing on his hockey career before deciding to return home and focus on his other passion, engineering. At a young age he decided he wanted to be an engineer and always found inspiration in trying to use technology to make the world a better place. He sees new and innovative technology as the gateway to help humanity tackle their toughest challenges, like global warming, which he believes must be addressed sooner rather than later.

Trevor currently holds Vice President of Events of the Memorial University Engineering Society where he collaborates with other students to try to make the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences an inviting and enjoyable place to study. He is in charge of organizing the annual Charity Ball hosted by the Engineering Society that will donate procceds raised to a local charity. Trevor feels that engineers have a civic duty to get involved with the community and try to help those that need it.

Trevor is very grateful and honored to be a recipient of the SPE Star Scholarship. This award will help with his future aspirations to help innovate to overcoming new and ongoing global challenges.
