Selection for the traditional scholarships was based on the applicant’s academic achievement and submission that demonstrated their creativity, innovative ideas, and commitment to a career in mining. As a solid entrepreneurial spirit is needed to succeed in Canada’s exploration and mining industries, the scholarships sought to recognize the qualities integral to developing mines and building mining and exploration companies. Lottery winners were randomly drawn from the pool of applicants, all pursuing careers in the mining industry.
