YMP Scholarships


The Young Mining Professionals Scholarship Fund (‘YMPSF’) was established to help Fund and promote mining and mining-related education to Canada’s next-generation mining entrepreneurs.

YMPSF’s mandate is to attract young people to Canada’s exploration and mining industry by supporting their academic studies in earth sciences post-secondary programs. YMPSF is a volunteer-based organization with 100% of its donations from partners awarded directly to the student scholarship recipients.

The 2023 Young Mining Professionals Scholarship Fund (YMPSF) has awarded a total of $210,000 to students pursuing mining-related programs at post-secondary institutions across Canada.

While the scholarships are invaluable for students, the 25 mining companies contributing to the fund benefit just as much if not more, according to Anthony Moreau, director of the fund and CEO of American Eagle Gold (TSXV: AE).

“This isn’t just a scholarship fund,” said Moreau. “It’s a way for mining companies to access the best and brightest young talent from the thousands of applications we receive. If you’re a mining company looking to hire summer interns and build relationships with students for eventual full-time employment, participation in the scholarship fund is really a no brainer.”
