Scholarships

At Thiess, we invest in our people and back them every step of the way

 

Our scholarships support students through their studies and provide them with an opportunity to launch their career in mining. 

We reward excellence, recognise potential and encourage those who may not have the capacity to realise career opportunities without financial support. 

Scholarship opportunities are offered throughout the year, aligning with university semesters and students can also join our vacation program across our mining projects.
