Student Scholarship/Internship Program

The Coal Association of Canada is pleased to announce the launch of a new combined scholarship/internship program to begin in the summer of 2019.

The intent of the program is to award both a monetary scholarship directly towards post-secondary tuition as well as a paid internship combining practical field experience with an operating coal mining company and research projects for the CAC during the summer of 2019.

This will be an extraordinary opportunity for the successful applicant and provide significant insight into the complex and evolving coal industry in Canada.


A $5,000 scholarship paid directly to the successful applicant’s educational institution towards the following year’s tuition.


The internship (paid) will combine both custom field experience at an active metallurgical coal mine(s) site and associated operations along with a research component on various topics related to the coal industry including latest coal technologies (mining and emissions control), coal production, economics and markets. The program will be tailored to the successful applicant’s field of study as best possible to provide maximum benefit to both the intern and the Coal Association of Canada.

The application window is now closed. Please check back in Fall 2019 for more details on our 2020 program and application intake schedule.
