1. A full-time COLLEGE SOPHOMORE or JUNIOR in good standing at the time of selection;

2. Both a U.S. citizen and a legal resident of one of the Rocky Mountain Coal Mining Institute member states - Arizona, Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Texas, Utah, or Wyoming;

4. Have an expressed interest in Western coal as a career path.

Scholarship selection is managed as follows:

1. The Rocky Mountain Scholarship Chairman will distribute scholarship applications to interested academic institutions. Among these are the University of Arizona, Colorado School of Mines, University of Missouri at Rolla, Montana Tech, New Mexico Tech, University of North Dakota, South Dakota School of Mines, Texas A&M University, University of Utah and others. Applications will also be sent to the Mines within the Institute member states. Nominations will be accepted only from students meeting the scholarship criteria.

2. It is the intention of the Rocky Mountain Coal Mining Institute to award a scholarship to a resident candidate from each member state as listed above. Applications from each state will be reviewed and rated by the Scholarship Committee. Interview of top candidates may be conducted. However, if there is no candidate acceptable to the Scholarship Committee from a particular state, no award will be given for that state.

3. The scholarship is continuous and may be renewed at the close of the recipient's junior or senior year upon recommendation from the dean of the college or university involved, provided that the recipient is still a full-time student in good academic standing. It is the recipient's responsibility to reaffirm their eligibility to the satisfaction of the Scholarship Committee.
