Georgia Mining Foundation Endowment for Education
2019 Roger Riffey Four Year Scholarship

In March 2019, GMF will award a four-year scholarship, which will pay $1,000 per year for four years. The scholarship awarded for the year 2019 will be given in honor and recognition of a person whose dedication and commitment to the mining industry is virtually unsurpassed: Roger Riffey

The Endowment for Education Program was created to raise funds for grants and scholarships; however, to be differentiated from the GMF Scholarship Program that provides scholarships to graduating high school seniors, the Endowment scholarships are intended for a four-year course study at the undergraduate level and for graduate students who are pursuing a Masters or Ph.D. degree. The Endowment Program will serve to “nurture a student into the mining industry” by enhancing the student’s education not only with financial assistance, but also with direct contact with the Georgia Mining Association and it’s members throughout the student’s entire education. High school seniors attending schools in Georgia are eligible to apply.

The deadline for the Application and Letter of Recommendation is February 1, 2019.  The application and essay information is available below.  Please print this information and return your completed application to the Georgia Mining Foundation office at 113 Arkwright Landing, Macon, GA  31210.

If you have any questions, please contact Dallas Jackson at dallas@georgiamining.org.
