Murdoch student receives generous scholarship

September 1, 2014

Sustainable Development and Environmental Science first year student, Megan Sleep, has won a prestigious scholarship from the WA Mining Club.

The $10,000 WA Mining Club (WAMC) Scholarship (co-sponsored by 360 Environmental) is split over two semesters and can be used to support her studies.

Megan said that after recognising the necessity of mining for the Australian economy she decided she would like to dedicate her career to minimising environmental impacts.

“I would like to express my gratitude to the WA Mining Club and 360 Environmental for this fantastic opportunity,” Megan said.

“I am looking forward to the networking opportunities and financial support offered by this scholarship.”

In addition to the financial component, Megan will be mentored by a senior industry participant in her discipline and will have access to other opportunities with 360 Environmental such as vacation employment, site visits and networking.

The judging committee considered applicants academic and/or work record, personal circumstances, commitment to their career and potential to achieve a position of leadership in the mining industry.

The WAMC was formed in 1972 by a group of dedicated Perth based industry professionals who recognised the value of meeting regularly to network and discuss industry issues.  The WAMC introduced the Scholarship Program as a way to stop the high attrition rates seen in mining-related disciplines.
