This is What We Do...
Every fall the SME Tucson Section partners with the mining community to sponsor scholarships to be awarded to students pursing degrees in mining related fields at the University of Arizona and other local accredited programs.
 
Invest in the Future of Mining
Many of tomorrow's most talented mining professionals get their start right here at the University of Arizona.  They need our support now more than ever with the cuts in state spending on education and financial aid in addition to the rising cost of tuition; it all adds up to make college increasingly expensive. Undergraduate tuition alone will increase to almost $10,000 a year for residents and $26,000 a year for non-residents. Once books, room and board, transportation and other necessary expenses are factored in, costs can nearly double.

Thank You for Your Generous Support!

Below are the 2016 sponsorship packages and benefits. Thank you for your generous support again this year!

Sponsor Packages

There are 6 donation packages this year: Mother Lode, Bonanza, Big Nugget,
Pay Dirt, Prospect and Supporter.
 
Description of Benefits
DINNER TICKETS
