Pennsylvania Anthracite Section of Society of Mining Engineers Accepting Applications for Student Scholarships



April 7, 2019 - The PA-Anthracite Section of Society of Mining Engineers/AIME is now accepting applications for the John Kaminski Memorial Scholarships for mining-related engineering or science majors for Pennsylvania students.  The deadline for applications is May 15.


A total of $2,000 in scholarships will be awarded-- a $500 scholarship to a graduating high school senior and 3- $500 scholarships to a college or university undergraduate for enrollment and attendance in an engineering or science program related to mining at a school in Pennsylvania. 


The Graduating Senior Scholarship is a one-time only grant issued for freshmen attending their first semester in the fall of the academic year.  


The College/University Undergraduate Scholarship is for High School Senior Scholarship winners and current undergraduate students and may be renewed upon application if satisfactory progress (>3.0 GPA) towards an appropriate degree is maintained.


Information about the scholarship grants can be obtained from Northeast Pennsylvania high school guidance counselors.  


A check for $500 will be presented to the selected students at the Section’s Annual Meeting and Dinner in late June for the fall semester.  If available, the students and their parents will be guests of the Society.
