Date Uploaded: Dec 02, 2013

MONROVIA, Nov. 13 (LINA) - ArcelorMittal Liberia has announced it is accepting applications for its Advanced Academic Studies Scholarship Program (AASSP).

The AASSP was launched in August 2012 as part of the Mineral Development Agreement (MDA) the company signed with the Liberian government, which provides that the company will provide scholarships annually worth US$ 200,000 to deserving Liberians in fields relating to the mining industry.

Unlike previous years, when the scholarship program was restricted to students pursuing postgraduate degrees, this year it has been expanded to include bachelor’s degrees in mining, geology and mechanical engineering, the company said in a media statement.

The program specifically supports students pursuing postgraduate and now undergraduate degrees in engineering, geology, natural sciences, procurement and logistics and vocational or technical education. 

Since its launch last year, 13 students have benefitted from the program and are currently enrolled at universities in Ghana, China, Australia, and Kenya.
