Bosworth Smith Trust Fund

Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining

The April 2017 deadline has now passed. This entry will be updated as soon as details of the next round of funding are announced

Approximately £5000 in total is available for grants for the assistance of postgraduate research in metal mining, nonferrous extraction metallurgy or mineral dressing. Applications will be considered for grants towards working expenses, the cost of visits to mines and plants in connection with such research, and purchase of apparatus.

Preference will be given to Institute members. The Institute will judge applications in respect of academic excellence and scholarship. The application must therefore specify academic ability. Candidates merely seeking assistance for financial hardship will not be considered.
