The International Society of Explosives Engineers (ISEE) Western Canada Chapter is offering a $1000 scholarship to a student who is studying a subject with some relevance to the non-military use of explosives or blasting.

Eligibility:

  • Attending a college or university in Canada studying a subject with some relevance to the non-military use of explosives or blasting (e.g. mining, civil, or chemical engineering; geology; seismic exploration; avalanche control; blasting physics)
  • Studies may be at any level (i.e. certificate, diploma, bachelors, masters, or doctorate)
  • Good academic standing

The main criterion for selecting a winner is the submission of a "paper" entitled “The safe use of controlled blasting in modern day construction and mining”. This could be in the form of an essay, a PowerPoint presentation, or some form of mixed media, movie, etc. The main aim is propaganda: to convince a skeptical public that explosives are very fundamental and useful to modern society, not just destructive. The work should be original and any quotations from the work of others must be properly referenced.

The successful candidate will be invited to receive their scholarship funds and give a presentation of their paper at the Annual Chapter Conference on March 31st , 2018 in Kamloops, BC. Reasonable travel and accommodation expenses will be reimbursed by the Chapter.

Application deadline is August 31, 2017. For more information, please see their website or the PDF below.
