This year, the SEE Education Foundation will be awarding $88,000 USD in scholarships to students pursuing degrees related to the explosives industry. This year will also feature an inaugural award from the Dale Ramsey Memorial Scholarship Fund. Created to honor the memory and legacy of an ISEE leader, this scholarship will mark the beginning of a lasting tribute to a man who gave so much of himself to the ISEE, and more significantly, students wishing to join our industry.

Each year, the Scholarship Committee reviews and scores applications from students in a wide range of disciplines and makes awards ranging from $1,500 USD to a potential top award of $7,500 USD made to an exceptionally qualified student. The scholarship acceptance period will run from Feb. 11 to May 3, 2019.

To be eligible for a scholarship, students must be, or plan to be, pursuing a technical, undergraduate, master’s or doctorate degree in fields of study related to the commercial explosives industries. Students will be evaluated on their academic and professional achievements, their goals related to the industry, a personal challenges narrative and a statement of financial need. The deadline to apply is May 3, 2019.
