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!  With the cuts in state spending on education and financial aid in addition to the rising cost of tuition; our next generation miners needs us more than ever. Despite the challenging economic times, we have seen an outpouring of industry support – especially for our students.

Thank You for Your Generous Support!

Below are the 2019 sponsorship packages and benefits. Thank you for your generous support again this year!
