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.
Due to close ties with industry and a generous network of alumni and friends, there are a number of School-specific scholarships. New and continuing students can qualify, on a competitive basis, for these scholarships beyond the University and the Millennium 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.
