Each year, the TRCR adjudicates scholarship applications from students in post-secondary institutions.


We are all students of mine reclamation

In honour of Jake McDonald, former Senior Reclamation Inspector in the British Columbia Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources, the Technical and Research Committee on Reclamation offers a total of $2,000 in scholarships to students registered at a university (undergraduate or graduate) or college in the province of British Columbia. Each year, the Symposium gathers in the fall at a different British Columbia location and the scholarships are awarded to deserving students.

To attend the Symposium there are many opportunities: students can apply to be volunteers and assist at the conference, students can submit a paper and give a presentation (or poster), students can apply for the Jake McDonald Memorial Scholarship and students are welcome to just come and attend the Symposium.
