New scholarship from the Maintenance, Engineering & Reliability (MER) Society


In 2016 the CIM Diversity and Inclusion Best Practice Guidelines articulated the goal that diversity become an ingrained value of CIM and the mining industry as a whole. Consequently in 2017 the MER Society decided that the MER Memorial Scholarship should be used to strengthen the opportunities for access and inclusion to the industry, via a post-secondary education pathway for awardees, so that diversity within the Canadian mining industry and associated industries is improved.
