IOM3 Mining & Minerals Scholarships and Bursaries

IOM3 Mining & Minerals Scholarships and Bursaries

IOM3 awards a number of scholarships and bursaries in the minerals and mining disciplines. Preference for these is given to IOM3 members and for the Centenary Scholarship, Student Membership of IOM3 is required.

IOM3 judges the applications received for each award in respect of academic excellence and scholarship. The application must therefore specify academic ability. Candidates merely seeking assistance for financial hardship will not be considered.

Applicants for these must ensure that the particular fund from which support is being sought is relevant to their field(s) of interest. Applications not in accordance with the specified terms and conditions of the various funds, those which are received after the closing date each year, and those for which the appropriate levels of support have not been received by the deadline, will not be accepted for consideration.

Bosworth Smith Trust Fund
Approximately £5,000 is available for grants from the Funf for the assistance of postgraduate research in metal mining, nonferrous extraction metallurgy or mineral dressing. Applications will be considered for grants towards working expenses, the cost of visits to mines and plants in connection with such research, and purchase of apparatus.

Centenary Scholarship
The annual Scholarship (£500/annum), which is restricted to first or second year undergraduates in student membership of the Institute, will be awarded for projects, visits, etc. in furtherance of the recipient's career development in the fields of minerals and mining.

Edgar Pam Fellowship
The Fellowship is awarded for postgraduate study in subjects within the fields of minerals and mining. Those eligible for the award are young graduates, domiciled in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the UK, who wish to undertake advanced study or research in the UK. The maximum value of the Fellowship, which is tenable for one year, is £2,000.

G Vernon Hobson Bequest
The Bequest was established for the 'advancement of teaching and practice of geology as applied to mining'. One or more awards may therefore be made for travel, research or other subjects in accordance with these terms (up to a value of £1,300).

Mining Club Award
The Award is offered to British subjects between the ages of 21 and 35 who are actively engaged (in full- or part-time postgraduate study or in employment) in the minerals industry, as defined by the Institute, for travel purposes - for example, to study mineral industry operations in the UK or overseas, to present a paper at an international minerals industry conference or to assist the applicant in attending a full-time course of study related to the minerals industry outside the UK - or for any other similar purpose that may be regarded as being within the spirit of the Award (value up to £1,500).

Stanley Elmore Fellowship Fund
Stanley Elmore Fellowships are tenable at a UK university for research into all branches of extractive metallurgy and mineral processing and, in special cases, for expenditure related to such research (normally two scholarships of up to £14,000 may be funded for any one year).

The Tom Seaman Travelling Scholarship
The Scholarship is awarded annually to a member, not older than 35 years, who is training or has been trained for a career in mining and/or related technologies. The scholarship shall be to assist the study for an aspect of engineering in the minerals industry, with the intention of advancing the associated standards or techniques.
