The McIntosh Engineering Scholarship (McIntosh Scholarship) is awarded annually to up to six promising undergraduate students entering
their junior year of an accredited undergraduate degree program in mining engineering with a focus on underground mining.
Eligible students may submit one application in consideration for both
the McIntosh Scholarship and the Fletcher Scholarship.
Students wishing to be considered for the McIntosh Scholarship must submit the required essay as detailed on the next page.
Grants for Projects & Activities:
The McIntosh Engineering Scholarship Fund committee will receive grant proposals twice a year for consideration. Funds available for
grants in each year will vary, depending on the quality of proposals and the availability of funds from the McIntosh gift and earnings on
the fund. Any nonprofit group is welcome to submit a proposal for consideration. However, all proposals must have a direct connection
to the McIntosh Engineering Fund mission.
Supporting materials can be submitted to help more fully explain the details of your proposal or add insight to complex proposals.
The McIntosh Fund will normally disburse its funding at the completion of a project. The disbursement request must include a summary
of the objectives of the project and its accomplishments, along with samples of the McIntosh Fund recognition of the project.
The funds available from the McIntosh Fund cannot be used for any endowment or any another foundation.
All McIntosh Fund projects, products, initiatives or works of any kind and any format, must also distinctly carry the credit line: Supported
by the McIntosh Engineering Scholarship Fund of the SME Foundation.
Semiannual progress reports from recipients of McIntosh funding must be submitted to the committee. These reports should detail the
progress of the project and how the McIntosh funds have been used to fund the program or project.
Submission deadline: October 15, 2017
