Bosworth Smith Trust Fund

Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining

Approximately £5,000 is available for grants from the Fund 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 is given to those applicants presenting papers at conferences either organised by the Institute or with which the Institute’s name is associated. The application must therefore specify academic ability. Candidates merely seeking assistance for financial hardship will not be considered.
