Mining and Minerals Scholarships and Bursaries

The Institute awards a number of scholarships and bursaries in the minerals and mining disciplines, as detailed below. Preference for these is given to Institute members, and for the Centenary Scholarship, Student Membership of the Institute is a requirement.

The Institute judges the applications received for each award in respect of academic excellence and scholarship. The application must therefore specify academic ability.

Applicants for these awards 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 that date, will not be accepted for consideration.

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 objects in accordance with these terms (up to a value of £1,300).

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Candidates merely seeking assistance for financial hardship will not be considered.
