MMG Engineering Leadership Scholarship

MMG Engineering Leadership Scholarship

MMG Limited and Monash University have enjoyed a long standing and positive relationship.  The MMG Mining Engineering Leadership Scholarship was originally created in 2015. At that time the scholarship required students to participate in the Engineering Leadership program.

MMG recognises the ability and potential of students specialising in Mining Engineering enrolled in the Faculty of Engineering and wishes to provide philanthropic support to encourage and reward student potential and achievement. They would like to broaden the eligibility pool to students outside the Engineering Leadership program and to international students. The scholarship title has also been amended to MMG Engineering Leadership Scholarship.
