The Mackay School of Earth Sciences and Engineering strives to attract motivated young men and women to pursue rewarding careers available through its earth science and engineering majors.

To be considered:

  • Please apply to the University and be accepted by February 1 of each year and indicate Geography, Geology. Geological Engineering, Geophysics, Hydrogeology, Metallurgical Engineering or Mining Engineering as your major.
  • There is no separate Mackay scholarship application.
  • Your information will be forwarded from the University's Scholarship Office to the College of Science and to Mackay for scholarship consideration.
  • Scholarships are merit-based and range from $500 to $5,000 a year.
  • For continuing students, please complete the on-line scholarship application by February 1 of each year.

Barrick Gold North America, Newmont Mining Corporation & W. Howard Winn Recruitment Scholarships

To encourage more young men and women to enter careers related to mining and to ensure the availability of qualified geological, metallurgical and mining engineers for the future, there are scholarships specifically for students in our engineering programs.

These scholarships come from Barrick Gold North America, Newmont Mining Corporation, and from an endowment in memory of W. Howard Winn, a metallurgical engineer remembered as a mentor to those in the minerals industry. As with all Mackay scholarships, there is no separate application and new students will automatically be considered for these prestigious scholarship awards.
