WA Mining Club Indigenous Scholarships – We’re Giving Away $10,000! – Last Chance

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.

We would like to let you know that our Indigenous Scholarships Applications are now open but closing soon on 20 July 2021.

We understand that students who are still young and perhaps not studying at university may not have a detailed resume. That is no barrier to applying for our scholarships. A personal statement and current educational status are sufficient, and the online application form is easy to fill out.

We are keen to hear from year 11 and 12 Indigenous students and those studying at TAFE or University. Whilst you may not be studying a mining discipline right now, we want to encourage you to consider a career in the resources industry.

This year our two $10,000 Indigenous scholarships are sponsored by IGO.

The Indigenous scholarships are open to Year 11 and 12 High School students and TAFE and University students. Eligibility criteria are explained in more detail via the website link given below.

In addition to the $10,000 award, winners will participate in a mentoring program designed to help them start building real life experience and a network in the mining industry. Winners and some finalists may also be offered vacation employment as part of the program.

All scholarship winners and finalists will receive a complimentary membership to the WA Mining Club and will be invited to attend at least one WA Mining Club luncheon in 2021 or 2022 as a complimentary guest of the Club.

To apply – please go to the application form on the website.
