The Mining History Association Research Grant Program is open to all who are currently engaged in or who plan to conduct mining history research, including graduate students, academic scholars, public sector professionals, independent scholars, and writers. Research may focus on technology, business, social and cultural life, the environment, or any other aspect of mining, its associated industries, and its communities.
