The Adrian Todd Golden Key Student Fund was set up on the Institute of Petroleum Engineering's 40th Anniversary in 2016. This marker coincided with Prof Todd's retirement from IPE where he had served since its inception. Adrian was well known to many as a lecturer in Petroleum Engineering, researcher in Fluids, Gas Condensates and CO2 Capture and Storage.
The fund will support IPE students to enhance their educational and research experience by providing funding to attend and present at high profile conferences, support research visits to leading universities across the world, fund international field and laboratory work and other initiatives that are in the spirit of pursuing excellence. In addition to these examples other exceptional cases will be considered.
The fund is supported by Alumni of IPE.
The Scottish Oil Club has supported this fund with donation, in recognition of Prof. Todd's many contributions to their activities over the years.
