The Mining Engineering program is committed to supporting students through inclusive scholarship opportunities. Financial support is available to qualified students from all backgrounds; we strongly encourage non-traditional students and individuals from historically underrepresented groups to apply. We offer multiple scholarship awards from the Explore More Scholarship valued at $10,000 and the Browning Scholarship, which awards students up to $7,500 per year. These scholarship opportunities can help you begin a rewarding, high-paying career that improves our communities in a meaningful way.
The Explore More scholarship is available to new incoming freshman students, resident and nonresident, and transfer students from community colleges who are starting their first semester at the University of Utah and are interested in pursuing a degree in Mining Engineering. Applicants must have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA on their most recent academic transcript and a strong background in mathematics, physics and chemistry. Participation in extracurricular activities is also a consideration. We strongly encourage individuals from historically underrepresented groups to apply.
