Dear Students,

The AusIMM and EIANZ have come together to offer financial support under an Environment and Community award which has been co-sponsored by BHP.

Given the common goal of improving environmental and community standards within professional practice through ongoing professional development, the purpose of the award is to provide financial support to students interested in pursuing a career in the environment and/or community disciplines within the minerals industry. The award is intended to support costs associated with completion of an Honours or Masters research project, or equivalent.

To be eligible to nominate for the award, students must be currently enrolled and planning to undertake an accepted Honours or Masters’ research topic with an environment or community focus within the minerals industry. The award is valued at up to $3,000 per annum and can be used to offset financial expenses incurred while undertaking the research project.

To be considered for the award, students will be required to complete an application form and email a copy to Applications for the 2019 Award close on Friday 15 March 2019. A panel of minerals industry environment and community professionals from AusIMM, and EIANZ will review the applications and announce the successful annual award recipient.
