The Sandy Laird Service Award in Mining Engineering supports second and third year undergraduate students majoring in Mining Engineering at UBC. The awards are for mining engineering students who aspire to become industry leaders through careers in mine operations and management. Strong leadership abilities are critical to advancement in the mining industry; therefore, candidates must have demonstrated leadership through active participation in extracurricular activities.
Your gift to the Sandy Laird Service Award in Mining Engineering will directly support mining engineering undergraduate students who have demonstrated leadership through active participation in extra-curricular activities in high school, university, the wider community and/or in sports. Any gift you make will be added to an endowed sum of $6,000 that is made available to students each year through the fund.
Mr. Laird has offered to match all new donations to the Sandy Laird Service Award in Mining Engineering up to a total of $5,000, effectively doubling the impact of each donation received.
