Are you or a family member studying next year? Apply for a Mineworkers Trust Scholarship


Halle and her Dad, Dave Brown

Every year, the Mineworkers Trust awards 20 scholarships each worth $6250 to our Members and their families. If you or your family member or dependent are undertaking or applying to undertake a course at Diploma Level or higher at TAFE or a public university in 2021 then you are eligible to apply.

Applications for 2021 are now open and must be received no later than Friday 5th February 2021.

Halle Brown, whose Dad Dave Brown works at Mt Arthur mine in our Northern District, was one of last year’s recipients. She recently contacted Common Cause to tell us how she is getting on at Uni.

Halle is undertaking a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Social Science (Criminology) at Newcastle University. She gained seven Distinctions over the year, and a High Distinction in Criminal Justice in Practice. Congratulations Halle!

Halle says that the scholarship has made a big difference to her study, allowing her to relocate closer to uni and cut down commuting time. “Without the support of the CFMEU and the scholarship assistance these results would not have been possible.”

The Mineworkers Trust disburses millions of dollars to support vital services and organisations in mining communities. The annual scholarship program has helped put hundreds of students from mining and energy families through universities and other higher education institutions.

Applications for the 2021 Mineworkers’ Trust Scholarship awards are now open.

The form is available as a fillable PDF. After you have opened the form in your web browser you must download it to your computer to make it fillable.
