The Institute confers a range of funding annually.
We’re in the process of redeveloping our range of Medals, Awards and Grants so check back regularly to see what’s on offer!
This medal is awarded annually jointly with the Midlands Institute of Mining Engineers (MIME) on the basis of work of outstanding quality by a young engineer, as recognised by an employer, HEI or by NEIMME or MIME. All engineers, of any engineering discipline, under the age of 35 and who are members of either MIME or NEIMME are eligible to receive the award.
These grants are awarded twice a year to Institute members in order to further their personal development. Typical awards are on the order of £100 which can be used for any appropriate area of experience (e.g. supporting attendance at academic conferences, career enhancing workshops, research work or blue-skies individual development), and includes CPD events run by professional organisations such as IOM3. All applications must be in advance of the proposed activity.
