2022 Winner: Britannia Mine Museum
An annual $20,000 fund will be available for distribution in the form of scholarships (excluding personal scholarships for post-secondary, geology-related education) and monetary funding with a minimum of $1,500 per award for proposed public education and training programs focused on mineral exploration. The amount of funding for each application will be based not only on the merits of the proposed project and funding requests, but also on the number of quality applications in a given year.
Eligibility: This award is open to charitable organizations in BC focused on education and outreach projects relating to mineral exploration and development.
Applicants who have been successful in previous years are welcome to submit new applications. Multiple applications for funding in a given year from one source, if they are of excellent quality and stand-alone projects, will be considered.
*Please note AME Staff, Board, and Committee Members are not eligible to apply. The Vancouver Foundation has the right to deny funding, and all applications will be reviewed in order to meet its criteria.
