Student Scholarship/Internship Program

The Coal Association of Canada is pleased to announce the continuation of our combined scholarship/internship program for the summer of 2024. There will be two scholarships/internships awarded for 2024 – one for a trades student and one for an engineering student.

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 during the spring/summer of 2024.

This will be an extraordinary opportunity for the successful applicants 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 internships will offer enriching and immersive field experiences at Conuma Resources’ metallurgical coal mines near the scenic community of Tumbler Ridge, British Columbia. This hands-on, rewarding experience offers successful applicants an opportunity to make meaningful contributions, while gaining a comprehensive understanding of the mining process. Tailored to enhance the successful applicant’s academic pursuits, this is an invaluable opportunity to gain practical knowledge and hands-on experience.
