Syd S. and Felicia F. Peng Ground Control in Mining Scholarship

Available for: Graduate Students Only


The Syd S. and Felicia F. Peng Ground Control in Mining Scholarship (Peng Scholarship) was established in 2009 to promote the science of ground control. Recent trends in the mining engineering professional indicate that a shortage of competent ground control engineers exists.

To help remedy this situation and promote the ground control engineering discipline, up to five scholarships will be awarded annually to encourage the development of ground control engineers.
