Taking Flight Award

Aboriginal high school and post-secondary students who wish to pursue a career in mining will now be recognized for their strong efforts. With startup funding from De Beers Canada Inc. and Diavik Diamond Mines Inc. (part of the Rio Tinto group), the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) is pleased to unveil our new Aboriginal scholarship. The Taking Flight Award will recognize four exceptional students annually with $1,000 prizes.

The recipients of the scholarship will be announced at the 2009 CIM Conference and Exhibition, May 10-13, in Toronto.
This is a worthwhile scholarship award that will help aboriginal students acquire the financial assistance they need to further their education in a career in mining or a related field.
Set a soaring future for mining by launching new careers into flight.

Deadline April 17, 2009
