PEM Scholarships awarded

Since its inception, the proceeds obtained from the annual seminar are used to support mining engineering student activities at UK.  Since 2010, KY-PEM used its funds to establish a ‘Professional Engineers in Mining’ account at the University of Kentucky – College of Engineering for scholarships to be awarded to undergraduate students in the Department of Mining Engineering at the Chair’s discretion.
