The MDEC Scholarship Fund is devoted to the furtherance of education for postsecondary students. Established in 2010, the Scholarship Fund was founded with the goal of providing assistance to students, who have demonstrated their commitment to academic success, community service, and who have or plan to have an affiliation with the mining industry.
Today, MDEC, through its newly launched Scholarship Program, begins a tradition of assisting children who might one day work in Canada's mining industry.
MDEC Scholarship Fund
The financial award (paid directly to the winning applicant's school) is available to fulltime students enrolled in recognized programs at approved post-secondary undergraduate and certificate program institutions. The payment towards tuition is made directly by MDEC Scholarship Fund to a Canadian university or college of the recipient's choice, and applied against the student's account. Should the student not complete the program of study, the portion of the unused tuition attributable to the MDEC Scholarship Fund, if any, would be refundable to MDEC.
