Minerals Education Bursary Scheme

On behalf of our sponsoring companies, the NSW Minerals Council (NSWMC) invites eligible upcoming Year 11 and Year 12 students to apply for a 2012 Minerals Education Bursary (MEBS).

This motivating program is designed to attract and retain senior secondary students' interest in the minerals industry as a possible future career of choice through a co-ordinated program of activities and contact with the industry and stakeholders such as our sponsoring companies and universities.

Bursary recipients will receive a cash grant of $500 for successful completion of Year 11 and $1,000 for successful completion of Year 12. $2,000 is granted to those bursary students who go on to successfully complete their first year in an undergraduate minerals related tertiary course in NSW within 12 months of completing their secondary schooling.

A key feature of the program is that every bursary recipient will be allocated a 'mentor' from their sponsoring company. Mentors will provide students with a long-term contact within the industry, offering career advice, study assistance and access to work experience and other mine site activities and resources.

The deadline for 2012 MEBS applications is the 15 February 2012.
