Launch Event Success

On Monday April 14 The WA Mining Club successfully launched its 11th annual scholarship program with more scholarships on offer than ever before.

With the support of our scholarship sponsors,  this years’ program has flourished to include 7 scholarships in 2014, two more than in 2013.

The club is , as always,  offering its customary scholarships in Mining Engineering, Environmental Sciences in the Mining Sector, Geology and Metallurgy. However this year they have introduced two new scholarships  – the Female Student in a Technical Discipline in the Mining Sector Scholarship and the Indigenous Student in Environmental Sciences or a Technical Discipline in the Mining Sector Scholarship.

WA Mining Club President  Neil Watson said the scholarship program was based on the WA Mining Club’s belief that the future and sustainability of the WA mining industry depends on the skillsets of the next generation of mining professionals.

“ It gives me great pleasure to present the WA Mining Club Scholarships to students who will be an asset to the mining industry in years to come,” he said.

The launch of the 2014  WA Mining Club Scholarships was hosted by President Neil Watson and included a guest presentation from Western Areas Managing Director and CEO Dan Lougher.
