RMMI Engineering Scholarship

The Rocky Mountain Mining Institute (RMMI) was founded in 1912 to promote mining through education. The mission has grown over time to include a scholarship program, which began in 1984, and public education funding, which started in 2002. The RMMI Engineering Scholarship assists mining students in furthering their education.

Full Description

The scholarship is presented to the recipient at the Institute’s annual conference, which is held in June each year. The winners will be RMMI guests, with an all-expenses-paid trip to their conference to accept their award. The scholarship money is sent directly to the college or university to be used as a tuition credit for the winner.

This money will not be sent directly to the winner due to federal mandates. The scholarship is worth up to $5,000 over three years ($2,000 for the initial application, $2,000 for the first renewal, and $1,000 for the second renewal). It is the recipient’s responsibility to reapply each year, using a simplified renewal application.
