THE CANADIAN MINERAL INDUSTRY EDUCATION FUND
The Canadian Mineral Industry Education Foundation has been offering scholarships since 1964 to undergraduate students with a strong interest in a career in the mining industry.
THE MINERAL INDUSTRY: WHERE IT ALL STARTS!
The mining sector is truly a global industry and Canada is unarguably a leader. The industry is opened to people, in Canada and elsewhere, ready to deliver in regards of markets' demand and global economic growth. In a constantly changing world, the mining sector demonstrates its innovative approach and need solid succession. The Foundation is here to support tomorrow's leaders.
WHO DO WE GIVE A SCHOLARSHIP TO?
The scholarships are normally awarded to those entering the second year of a university program but first-year students have also been selected for the awards. Once selected the successful recipients receive $1,000 per academic term until the degree program is completed, provided that satisfactory academic performance is maintained and that work experience in the mining industry is obtained between academic terms with reports to be submitted following each work term.
SUPPORT FOR THE INDUSTRY
The Canadian Mineral Industry Education Foundation supports 170 students enrolled in universities across Canada. Financial support for the Foundation comes from those Canadian mining companies who want to ensure that university students are aware of and will be attracted to the possibilities for interesting and rewarding careers in the mining industry.
