There are MANY available scholarships that have become available in recent years; and many have been under subscribed. There is a shift in the issuance of scholarships from predominantly needs based to merit based and the increase in funding of graduate student applicants.

Such scholarships related to the explosives and blasting field include:

International Society of Explosives Engineers (ISEE)

Best in the West 


Allen J. Hale Endowed Scholarship (deadline August 15th)

Society of Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME)

S&T Chancellors fellowship (for PhD candidates)

S&T Graduate office funding opportunities

These are just a few of the scholarship and fellowship resources available.

When applying for one of these scholarships and requesting a letter of recommendation or computer input, please bring your file and resume in person to the faculty or staff mentor to work on it and assistance. They are happy to help! But remember that the faculties time is very valuable and this helps to expedite the process.
