Charles W. Margolf Higher Education Scholarship Award

In 2009 The Rocky Mountain Mining Institute created the Charles W. Margolf Higher Education Scholarship Award to honor, and help, former RMMI Scholars continue on with additional degrees in a discipline with applications to the mining business.

This scholarship will be given if, and when, a former scholarship recipient, and current RMMI member, contacts the Institute and advises the Institute that he/she will be going back to school for an advanced degree. Considerations for this scholarship include the scholar’s acceptance to a school for post-graduate studies as well as additional contributions made to the RMMI following graduation from undergraduate studies. The Board will then vote as to whether the scholarship should be granted and the level of financial support to be offered.

Application Deadline

Application deadline is March 1, 2022. No applications will be accepted after that date. Interviews of prospective candidates will be conducted in March. Scholarship winners will be selected and notified in April 2022.

Please contact the RMMI office, at 303/948-3300 or send us an email, if you have questions regarding the scholarship program. We appreciate your interest.
