Scholarships Overview

About the Program

Every year the WA Mining Club, in conjunction with industry co-sponsors, offers a number of scholarships to encourage and foster the development of the next generation of leaders within Western Australia’s mining sector. 

Mentoring Program

Scholarship recipients will be offered a mentoring program, provided by industry participants from the Scholarship co-sponsors. Each recipient must meet with their mentor at least four times during 2023/24, ideally in person.  Winners in regional or remote locations can meet via telephone or teleconferencing. Mentors will provide advice in relation to networking, making progress in the mining industry and other topics as agreed between the recipient and the mentor.

Vacation and other work opportunities

Scholarships recipients are eligible for vacation employment, if available, from the Scholarship co-sponsor. Other work opportunities may also be available as agreed between the recipient and the co-sponsor.

Networking opportunities

Apart from the financial support provided by a Scholarship, winners and finalists will have the opportunity to network with the WA Mining Club’s extensive network of mining professionals. All finalists selected by the selection panel will receive a complimentary membership to the WA Mining Club in 2023/24 to enable them to network with members at luncheons and other events.
